IBM WebSphere Cast Iron: Integrations and/or Jobs Stuck: Solution

Overview

If you are having troubles with jobs that are not stopping (stuck in cancelling state), or the integrations are stuck in starting or stopping state plus the appliance is slow and the resources are being eating away, follow the next steps:

  1. Login using Putty
    IBMWebSphere_2.fw
  2. Execute the following command: system clean running orchmon
    Note:
    This command will remove any current running jobs and deletes the job logs to clear up resources. Even do the appliance will not be restarted, the web interface will be restarted.
    IBMWebSphere_1.fw

This will allow you to clean the appliance without having to restart or reboot it. However, all the log information you were storing will be wipe out.
