It is indeed advised to use sunjdk as openjdk is a bit behind as far
as bug fixes are

Moreover, 0.6.3 is pretty old now and we do have fixed a number of
issue related to
load spikes, so before investigating further the best advice I can
give you is to upgrade
(either to 0.6.13 if you really feel like staying on 0.6, or to 0.7.5).
