Confluence is performing poorly. GC logs show constant garbage collection but there is a large amount of memory free.


Versions of Excel Plugin pre 3.6 include a version of JexcelAPI that resulted in repeated explicit garbage collection causing major performance issues.


Upgrade to version 3.6 or later of the Excel Plugin.
