Coordinator stops responding - OutOfMemoryError


Article ID: 133637


Updated On:


CA Application Test


I am running into intermittent instances where CVS tests stop running.  Currently Daily over the last 3 days.  There has been no environmental changes.

I have traced this back to the fact that the Coordinator appears to have stopped responding.

The coordinator count in the Portal/Server Health window shows 0 coordinators.

The coordinator java process IS still running.

The coordinator log is showing OutOfMemoryErrors.

I will upload the coordinator logs.


Release : All supported DevTest versions

Component : CA Application Test


 SEVERE: Could not accept connection : Connection reset

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Could not put anything new on the event queue

Add these two properties to the on the DevTest  Coordinator machine:



and Restart Registry , coordinator and Simulator to pick up the new properties.

The timeout issue is not really a bug, it is an indication that the system is overloaded.


When using connection pooling for load tests (multi-VUs), you may need to configure the lisa.jdbc.pool.maxPoolSize property not to run out of connections (starvation),

lisa.jdbc.pool.maxPoolSize=25 ( default is 10)

 Updating the lisa.eventPool.maxQueueSize will not fix the problem but will provide more resources to the system so that the timeout errors are delayed.

Also, Check that there is sufficient space in the Registry database and that there is no connection problem accessing this database.
