I first installed the PLM to allow the content formatting and rate plugins to work. All seemed fine after the first restart, then everything hit the fan about a day later.
What happened next was that Confluence got itself into a restart loop, there were over 1000 JAR files (ending in jar not .jar) in the confluence temp directory totalling over 1GB, I kept getting java.io.IOException: Too many open files reported in the log. My systems (Linux RHEL 5.5) ulimit was set to unlimited in this case.
I managed to restore from backup and remove the PLM, everything has been fine since.
PLM: 0.5.1, 0.6.1
Confluence: 3.5.5, 3.5.11
OS: Linux 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5
App Server: Apache Tomcat/6.0.32
JDK: Sun Microsystems Inc. 1.6.0_26
Please see the confluence log for what happens when Confluence is restarted after turning the PLM on, this was captured with PLM 0.6.1
Anyone else experienced this?
UPDATE: What is the status of this? I've provided logs and still nothing has been mentioned of a fix, this is getting extremely frustrating as nothing has been done. It's quite annoying to see that all adaptavist plugins suddenly require a beta plugin which has not been updated in quite some time.
I can't upgrade to confluence 4.x due to this bug, we will just have to drop the use of adaptavist plugins. Don't think we will ever consider an adaptavist pack in the future.
