What could cause the JVM instance to go down in this case?
- The servlet invocations keeps rising,
- certain methods that access a common database are stalling and the calls to the methods are increasing.
- eventually the JVM cannot take any more requests, and the number of jdbc connections is no longer varying.
- I know the DB is up.
I suspect the connectivity to the DB breaks down, but not quite sure what to look for to verify if that is indeed the case. Does this sound reasonabl ot if you have any other suggestions?
