Comment 2 Bret McMillan 2008-06-12 18:13:33 UTC
I've experienced this before; I believe that it's due to the fact that the vm's
in question are all running on the same host with marginal resources.  One dinky
little server trying to serve the db, plus 5 app clients, is a bit much for a
desktop-class machine.

As we don't really have any real hardware in place for this yet, I think we need
to try to reproduce this once the production machines are up.

Keeping this bug open for now.

Comment 3 Bret McMillan 2008-08-22 16:30:34 UTC
Haven't seen this in production, or when more resources are provided to the vm's.  Closing it out.

Moving to product "Red Hat Collaboration Applications".
