    • ehcache updated as part of Spring 5 update
    • Heap Dump file might be useful during startup to see what is being loaded onto stack
      • onchange() no longer hooked up for managing process, since no longer loading during serving
      • Could be adding a lot of pressure on environment to build it all during startup
      • Could new OS be handling the stacks differently?
      • Corretto - outside chance this is an issue, but we think it not likely
  • Try to get a Heap dump on Dev/ maybe on local
  • Examine what has changed in ehcache with Spring 5

    • We have a captcha on that page
