The Oracle Commerce Guided Search / Oracle Endeca Workbench hangs after 200 connections are reached, preventing business users from using the Workbench.

An error is logged within the $ENDECA_TOOLS_CONF/logs/ifcr.log:

If the Endeca Tools Service is restarted, the issue resolves temporarily.

In a short time under normal operation load, the message reappears, and the Endeca Workbench hangs again.
