08 Jun 2015 14:53:19,088 ERROR [DataFactoryException:84] java.lang.IllegalStateException: getAttribute: Session already invalidated
Release: NMSASE99000-6.5-Monitoring Solution-Application Server-for Enterprise
This error can be highly environmental.
Here is a general description of what causes the error:
- when a user logs into UMP a session is created for that user
- this session times out in 5 minutes
- if a user is still browsing a page in UMP after the 5 minutes, the session is extended for 1 minute.
- every 1 minute, the UMP checks to see if the browser is still connected and actively browsing
- if so, the session is extended for 1 minute again until the user closes the browser.
The "Session already invalidated" message indicates that, for some reason, the UMP thinks that the browser has disconnected, and the session was allowed to time out. Then, on the next time the browser tries to take some action or refresh the view, etc, the "session already invalidated" error is thrown, indicating that the UMP has already closed this session since it thinks it lost contact with the browser.
This may be caused by things like:
- excessive load on the UMP causing it to fail to respond to browser requests in time
- network issues causing a drop in the established connection between UMP and the browser
- a proxy server in between UMP and the browser which is not properly set for "sticky sessions"
- antivirus or network security interfering with the connection between UMP and browser
- users sharing usernames/passwords, where multiple users are viewing the same page from the same location using the same username -- one user logging out may cause this error to appear for the other users who are using the same username
Note that this may not resolve the issue in all cases (especially those caused by environmental/network issues, resource constraints, etc.) but may help.
First, edit the dashboard_engine.cfg and look for the <updateintervals> section (via Raw Configure) - set the following values (some of these may differ only slightly from the current values.)
Please note, dashboard_engine and dap are no longer valid for UIM 8.2 and above and this section can be skipped for those versions.
update_ums_interval = 79
dap_query_interval = 37
stat_verification_interval = 59
dashboard_cleanup = 77
tz_offset_check_interval = 1
query_max_row_count = 100
robot_list_rebuild_interval = 69
multi_instance_check_interval = 45
dynamic_views = 81
subscription_verification_interval = 73
system_check = 31
query_refresh_rate = 57
dashboards = 46
variables = 38
preview_cleanup = 61
Next, edit the wasp.cfg (via Raw Config) and set the following values:
nimpool_max_wait = 300
nimpool_timeout = 300
Next, it's possible to adjust session timeouts to a higher value by modifying settings in 2 files on the UMP server:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\probes\service\wasp\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes\portal-ext.properties
locate and modify the following:
Next file: C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\probes\service\wasp\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\web.xml file
-<session-config> <session-timeout>5</session-timeout> </session-config>
-<session-config> <session-timeout>10</session-timeout> </session-config>
It may also help to increase the maximum Java memory allocated to the WASP probe (which can be done in the probe's configuration GUI).
Finally, this can be caused by database performance related to high levels of index fragmentation on the database server. The following index rebuild statements will rebuild the indexes on the tables most often affected:
