Weblogic startup is taking more time

There might be multiple reasons for the starup slowness . To troubleshoot the issue fist remove the application targeted from the application server for this JVM and then try to start the server alone . If we still get the issue then it is something not relevant to Application .Refer the below in some cases this solve the issue where the application is not using random number generator . before implementing the change get the confirmation once with App team and finalize the change .

The library used for random number generation in Oracle’s JVM relies on /dev/random by default for UNIX platforms. This can potentially block the WebLogic Server process because on some operating systems /dev/random waits for a certain amount of “noise” to be generated on the host machine before returning a result.

Although /dev/random is more secure, it’s recommended to use /dev/urandom if the default JVM configuration delays WebLogic Server startup. To determine if your operating system exhibits this behavior, try displaying a portion of the file from a shell prompt: head -n 1 /dev/random

If the command returns immediately, you can use /dev/random as the default generator for JVM. If the command does not return immediately, use these steps to configure the JVM to use /dev/urandom:

Open the $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/java.security file in a text editor.
Change the line “securerandom.source=file:/dev/random” to read: securerandom.source=file:/dev/./urandom
Save your change and exit the text editor.
And because there’s a bug in JDK when you use /dev/urandom you have to set it up as /dev/./urandom

You can also set up system property “java.security.egd” which will override the securerandom.source setting.

Take backup of java.security and update the value of securerandom.source=file:/dev/./urandom and restart the server .
