Identity Portal takes a long time to load and the log shows a lot of jgroup warn messages concerning org.jgroups.protocols.pbcast.GMS.
'JGROUPSPING' is flooded with stale data which the application server has to go through when loading.
This in turn is causing a delay in loading of Identity Portal but in no way is hindering any aspect of the Identity Portal function or performance.
