Deleting server logs causes GlassFish to hang - why? :(
One of our clients uses GlassFish extensively and we have noticed an issue lately when we try to delete cycled server logs; I believe they are using GlassFish version 2.1.
Every time we do any of these deletions, the GlassFish server seems to hang; that is to say the application using it ceases to function properly. The amount of logs vary on each machine but there are a number of gigabytes worth of logs on each server.
I can't find anything elsewhere on the internet regarding this and my client does not have support with Oracle for GlassFish; has anyone else seen this sort of behavior before? If so, is there a work around? Or perhaps this is a known bug?
