One of our Sakai production servers slowed to a near standstill with about 90 users logged in and taking final exams. We are running Sakai 2.6.0 on a 4-processor 64-bit Windows machine with 8 GB of RAM with 5 GB allocated to the JVM. The chain of errors started with those in the attached zip file. Eventually no one could log in and it would take 10-15 minutes for a user interface action such as a button click to take effect.  Processor utilization on the server was 0-2% during this episode and there was about 200 MB of available memory according to the Memory tool in the admin workspace. Would appreciate any suggestions.

Java options are as follows:
