If you discovered that Confluence died without manual intervention, there may be something goes wrong during a local Java session. Java will produce a log file that looks like the following: hs_err_pid20929.log.

The location of this log file is usually in the directory where Tomcat is run eg. /bin folder. For Windows Services, it should be located in where Windows Services are run.

Useful JVM Option

To define the path to the hs_err_pid file, add the following JVM Parameter to your existing ones:

-XX:ErrorFile=./hs_err_pid<$pid>.log
