GMSC freezes when loading the overview map

Hi all,


Our client is using GMSC 2015.0.3.0_20160616. Occasionally, when we launch the GMSC, (in 1 out of 5 times) the GMSC suddenly freezes as its overview map is loading, it seems to be choked and we end it up killing it from the Task Manager. We thought that our custom java plugins could be the cause, but after stripping all custom plugins, the issue still happens; however, we observe that it happens lesser (around 1 out of 7 times).

Re: GMSC freezes when loading the overview map



what is the content of the overview? Please provide for each layer information about datasource and loading mode.

Re: GMSC freezes when loading the overview map

Hi Stefano,


I investigated the overview layer. It only has 3 features that have a few number of instances, they are cached and from MS SQL. I experiment with them by taking one of them out in turn, but it does not solve the problem.


Then, I go back to the Java console and start looking at the features are loaded at the time the crash happens. There is one feature that appears in all the crashes, this feature is from MS SQL and cached, I also checked all its entries with STIsValid function and all of them pass. Additionally, I experiment it by changing the title settings, but the issue still occurrs. However, when I remove the right to see this feature from my role to stop the feature from loading, then it has not occurred after 20 tries. So, I consider it as a work around but still can't get to the bottom of the issue.


Kind regard
