I’ve been struggling with a huge memory consumption of openfire, like forever. I want to increase the allocated memory for openifre but i’m not able to set -Xmx parameter within my vmoption over 1472m. If i do so, openfire simply won’t start.
Even if i’m running Windows Server 2008 R2 x64, Java 7 x64 i’m not able to allocate more memory for openfire. I think, this is because openifre does not use the Java 7 x64 version installed on the system by me, but uses the internal java version which comes with the openfire.exe install package - right? And that Version of Java ist x86 (32-bit).
If i’m right so far, how to increase the working java memory of openfire. How to use the full potential of the java 7 x64 version?
I found this document in here asking the same question back in 2013 but did not get any valuable answers. This rexent post asks about my question within the comments also. This document isn’t very helpful, because it seems like a “hack” and not an official way. Plus it seems like it’s lacking the latest version of openfire.
Did i missed something? Maybe it’s easily to be done? I hope so and looking forward to it
