We have an odd problem.
Having been running an image controlling one of our web sites for four years, we found, the other day, that the web site was timing out continually.
This is a 6.0.2 image running WebConnection. Nothing has changed with the set up of the computer or the configuration of the WebConnection software.
Basically, we have the occasional debug issue which is hard to resolve as none of our customers can tell us what they did - as we don't know who they are because they use the system anonymously until they need to buy a product. However, it seems that once the debug window pops up, the memory being taken by the Smalltalk image grows and the processor usage leaps to in excess of 50%. The program, on startup, takes around 63MB, with embedded memory held data. The memory usage grows to around 130MB and at that point everything stops. The memory usage seems to be connected with the debug window. When we shut the debug window, the program starts to respond again, albeit very slowly.
Also, we use socket connections to access data from a wholesaler web site and that stops at this point with time outs but I think that this is as a result not a symptom of the problems.
Does anyone have any idea of what is going on here. I have close to 14 years experience of VAST and have not come across this before.
