Another Glassfish Gotcha!

Logs again folks.

We had a big system we deployed, got 23 users in it ran like a DOG, updated Glassfish 2.1.1 still ran like a dog (but didn’t crash with permgen problems).

What was happening was simple the web stack was writing hundreds of INFO statements about combos and drop downs. I set all the logs to only report SEVERE errors and it all sped up!

  1. That’s probably a very common gotcha that isn’t all that related to GlassFish (other than it’s pretty easy to dynamically change log levels 😉

    • Hi Alexis,

      Yes it’s true when you think about it in the context of other servers, but glassfish especially when working with Visual Web (some of us have to create 300 field forms!). Because visual web creates hundreds of messages when drop down boxes are not populated on load of the page, which is what we do when using DHTMLX components. 🙂 Thanks for the comment.
