Confluence experiences slow performance at regular intervals. Thread dumps, taken across time, show this thread:

	at $Proxy29.optimizeIndex(Unknown Source)
	at com.atlassian.confluence.setup.quartz.AbstractClusterAwareQuartzJobBean.surroundJobExecutionWithLogging(
	at com.atlassian.confluence.setup.quartz.AbstractClusterAwareQuartzJobBean.executeInternal(
