Alfresco crashing during working hours

Question asked by hostman on Feb 16, 2016
Latest reply on Feb 24, 2016 by hostman
So, we are now experiencing this problem - Alfresco is very slow during working hours and finally crashes. Our setup is following:
Virtual server for applications (alfresco and share): 4 x 2.40 GHz, 9.5 GB RAM;
Database server: 4 x 2.40 GHz, 5GB RAM;
OS: Centos 6;
Alfresco version: Alfresco 4.2.e + Alvex Enterprise 2.1.2 plugin;
Users: <500;
Active users: 10-20;

<strong>Problem we are having</strong>
Alfresco documentation says, that with such server parameters we should be able to run server with 500 users or 50 concurrent.
During working hours, load average of server increases to ~30, CPU runs 100% and system becomes very slow. After running slow system crashed and starts throwing errors. I attach screenshot of server load:
[img=640x480]https://cdn-forums.alfresco.com/sites/forums/files/load_average.png[/img]

Those spikes in load average looks strange for me. When I am using the system when there is no load, I see 10-40% CPU utilization for 1 or 2 seconds after each click I make (home page, repository, my tasks, site page). If I press my completed tasks, there is 40% CPU utilization for about 2-3 seconds (I have only 135 tasks completed, other business users has a lot more tasks completed).
Some quotes from logs:

After Alfresco restart everything works fine until again load average reaches value of ~30.

<strong>Solutions we have tried</strong>

We have tried several solutions, which were not very successful:
1. Different servers for alfresco application and database (worked for couple months);
2. Tuning JVM, but no results;
Current JVM settings:
JAVA_OPTS="-XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xss1024K -Xms1G -Xmx8G -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote -Djava.awt.headless=true -Dalfresco.home=/opt/alfresco -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote -Dsun.security.ssl.allowUnsafeRenegotiation=true -server"


Do you have any other ideas which would be worth trying? Maybe you have any ideas how to identify which user actions are causing these spikes in load average?
