By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

Java9 is on its way now, in this blog I’ll talk about the new features I found interesting, the performances and so on. Configure Eclipse for Java9 Prior to Eclipse Oxygen 4.7.1a, you’ll have to configure eclipse a little bit to make it run your Java9 projects. Add in eclipse.ini after –launcher.appendVmargs -vm C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-9.0.4\bin\javaw.exe   Still in eclipse.ini add: –add-modules=ALL-SYSTEM   You should have something like this: –launcher.appendVmargs -vm C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-9.0.4\bin\javaw.exe -vmargs -Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.6 -Xms40m…

Documentum xPlore: Failed to load content file + file system full

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

We had issues with our indexing server when launching batches of indexes to the queue, in the xPlore server. The indexing was taking so much time to index documents and almost all queue items fell down to the warning/error state. In addition, our file system was growing too fast : 100Go for only 30.000 docs. I was like the temp folders weren’t cleared properly. And in other hand the queue was telling that the temp…

Error accessing D2: Error while fetching repositories

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

After patching our D2 we ran into an error we never had before. After all, it’s only a patch. But as you know, patching D2 means recreating the war file and deploying it again. As well as setting up again all the customs you made… Well this time we had a popup when accessing the D2 interface, which said “Error while fetching repositories”.

Documentum xPlore: Tuning of JVM for high throughput and low CPU usage

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

Sometimes you have java processes or even jboss servers using a lot of CPU. In my example I had an xPlore dsearch server using like 98% of the cpu. When using jconsole and jvisualvm I figured out the garbage collector was using 50 to 60% of the cpu time. This was because the server was indexing and accessing the internal DB very often. Hence a lot of objects were created, the JVM was not correctly…

If you setup start_index_agents=T in the server.ini, the job will be called when the docbases are started. 2. Use the web interface: Login to http://server:9200/IndexAgent/ with docbase credentials and select “Start in normal mode” 3.
