A while back I remember reading a thread or posting somewhere on this site where someone had tried to use an alternative JRE other than Sun’s own product to run openfire. I’m curious if anyone knows of what the name of it was and have they managed to get openfire running with it?
Otherwise, I’m curious if anyone has any ‘good’ optimization suggestions to make openfire a little more lean on resource usage. I’m currently running it on a slightly underpowered machine consisting of a 400MHZ Amd K6-2, 180MB ram, and an 8GB drive running debian linux in console mode. It’s mostly the memory usage that’s getting unwieldy. At most I have 5 users connected at one time, but usually it’s just two. Aside from that and the basic setup, I just have the IM gateway plugin running and all users use it in some form or another. But the java service constantly ramps up to ungodly amounts, regularly causing the system to swap more than it really should. It gets even worse the longer I run it despite no real increase in usage from users or anything of that sort.
