4.8.1 openfire - OutOfMemory issue

We were using openfire 4.7.1 and recently upgraded 4.8.1
On the same load setup, with the old same old xmppclients, we could see the openfire server going out memory frequently. There are lakhs of message of type WebSocketSession->JettyWebSocketFrameHandler → StringMessageSink.
Is there any configuration to limit those message in memory or drop them when a threshold breaches?


Hi Dhina,

This is a known issue in 4.8.0 and 4.8.1 that will be fixed in 4.8.2. The bug is triggered only by websockets connections.

More details on the issue can be found in our bug tracker, here: [OF-2818] - Ignite Realtime Jira
