    Details

      Description

      Currently Confluence 5.8.x Installer for both Windows and Linux distribution is bundled with JDK8u45.

      However, there's a known bug - JDK-8068400 in Java itself that's affecting JDK8u45, which is causing JVM crashes that lead to a Confluence outage. This bug has been confirmed to be fixed in JDK8u51.

      Snippet of the crash log during the JVM crash as per below:

      #A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
      #
      #Internal Error (sharedRuntime.cpp:834), pid=1509, tid=140309741414144
      #fatal error: exception happened outside interpreter, nmethods and vtable stubs at pc 0x00007f9d090541ef
      #
      #JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (8.0_45-b14) (build 1.8.0_45-b14)
      #Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (25.45-b02 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)
      #Failed to write core dump. Core dumps have been disabled. To enable core dumping, try "ulimit -c unlimited" before starting Java again
      #
      #An error report file with more information is saved as:
      #/tmp/hs_err_pid1509.log
      #
      #If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit:

      #
      

      Please bundle JDK8u60 in Confluence 5.8.x installer distribution once JDK8u60 has been released.

      Workarounds:

      1. Upgrade to JDK8u51 or the latest. It can be downloaded here.
      2. Add the -XX:-UseAESIntrinsics flag to the JVM - this disables AES Intrinsics (introduced in Java 8).
