server never coming back up, stalling on loading cache of build committers

We had to stop the server process (on linux) and restart it, and I had to kill a lot of process that it left behind from the shutdown.  When I started it up, it just seems to hang on this line.

[2010-03-04 15:41:55,873]   INFO -   jetbrains.buildServer.SERVER - Start loading cache of build committers...

It never seems to get past that point (i've attached the full log)

I cleared out the teamcity-data/system/cache directory to see if that helped, but no change.

Hitting the url for our server just times out.

Ok, it finally came up, but it took 20 minutes!  That's a lot longer than when we started using this.  Any ideas what would cause that step to take so long?

How can we take threaddumps? at the point in time where this happens, teamcity is still starting up.

I'm seeing 6 minutes for "Start loading cache of build committers...",

and I'm wondering if it could be related to why teamcity is so incredibly slow for me in normal usage.

Do you see any Java processes? Try to take thread dumps from all of them and use dump with "buildserver" string in it.

Kind regards,
