Could you post your SonarLint logs and/or a thread dump? You can find the instructions for getting them in the docs.

Also, I need to mention that your SonarQube version is past EOL. You should upgrade to either the latest version or the current LTA (long-term active version) at your earliest convenience. Your upgrade path is:

8.9.3 → 9.9.4 → 10.5.1 (last step optional)

If you have questions about upgrading, feel free to open a new thread for that here.
