Issue/Introduction

We are getting the "Unexpected error in auto-refresh object factory: GC overhead limit exceeded" and the VSE goes down twice in the last two days. It requires a manual restart to bring it back.

Cause

Have a lot of virtual services deployed to this VSE and recently deployed 2 to 4 additional virtual services to this same VSE, so more memory was needed to account for the new deployed services.

Environment

All supported DevTest releases and platforms.

Resolution

Changed on the VirtualServiceEnvironmentService.vmoptions file these entries: 

 

#-Xmx1024m 

-Xms2048m 

 

Brought down VSE. 

 

Delete of rename the lisatmp folder. 

 

Started VSE service up. 

 

Verified Service up and running. 

 

Have had no issues since we made the java heap size changes.
