Default Intermittently can't launch Administrator with 'Error Downloading/Verifying Codebase'

We've been encountering a frustratingly sneaky problem recently when attempting to connect to our instances of Mirth Connect 3.6.1. Sometimes it works fine, but seemingly at random for extended periods of time, any attempt to connect the launcher (either via the NextGen Connect Administrator Launcher or via the Mirth Connect Administrator web page) fails.

When attempted via the web page, it just times out; when attempting via the Administrator Launcher (using the built-in JVM), we get the following error:

Error Downloading/Verifying Codebase
The markup in the document preceding the root element must be well-formed.
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; lineNumber: 1; columnNumber: 3; The markup in the document preceding the root element must be well-formed.

	at com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.jaxp.DocumentBuilderImpl.parse(Unknown Source)

	at com.mirth.connect.client.launcher.MirthClientLauncher.run(SourceFile:1122)
	at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)
During this time, we can still get to the Administrator Launcher web page in a browser (//<host>:<http.port>/), but attempting to actually click the "Launch Mirth Connect Administrator" button just times out.

There are no errors logged in mirth.log, and we know the port is open because we can still telnet to the host using the port configured as http.port in mirth.properties. Running ps -ef | grep mcservice still shows that mcservice is running. There are other applications running on the same server, and there is ample available RAM and CPU%.

Even more oddly, the problem seems to self-resolve after an extended period of time. Coming back and attempting again some hours later, it's as if there was never a problem (nothing logged, everything responding as expected).

We're running:
CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 (Core)
Oracle jdk1.8.0_191-amd64
Mirth Connect 3.6.1
NextGen Connect Administrator Launcher using Default Java Home (1.8.0_191-b12)

Any thoughts or further troubleshooting suggestions? At the moment, if we urgently need to access the Administrator console during one of these recalcitrant periods, our only option is to kill the mcservice process and restart the service again (usually in this phase, running mcservice stop doesn't actually the process, despite feedback saying that the daemon has been stopped).

Hate to bump the thread, but we're still running into this periodically in our production environment, and it's quite a problem when it does (as we often have to do emergency maintenance to recover from it in a timely fashion).

Anybody even have any troubleshooting steps we can try, beyond what we've already looked at above? Not sure if this is an issue with Java GC causing the unresponsiveness, or a bug with the Mirth app itself, or if it's something resource-related on the server overall, but something keeps causing the app to go into seclusion and not let us in. Not a comfortable place to be in.

I just upgraded Mirth Connect from 3.5 to 3.7 and I am continuously getting the same error when trying to launch a connection from Administrator Launcher. Before the upgrade it was working just fine.

Does anyone have a solution for this?
