Abnormal Memory Usage

Memory on our servers has been quite high recently. I remember a few months ago adding the “.vmoptions” file to my bin directory defining the amount of RAM I would like java to use, but its not there anymore. Is the bin directory removed when performing an upgrade? I have herd it may also be plug-ins that are causing the excessive memory usage. I removed all the plug-ins we don’t use anymore and restarted to service. Below are a few lines from the debug log. Does anyone know what they mean, or how to fix them?

It may be important to note that this install is clusterd using heartbeat, and mySQL master master replication.

Hi Wesley,

did you read the announcement on http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/index.jspa ?

Anyhow with an uptime of 130 days you may consider simply restarting it.
