Down openfire

Hello, I think my problem had already with many people…

sometimes my openfire ( version 3.6.4 on CentOS 5.6 ) go to down. neither user is able make login on it.

when the problem accur the java memory is in 99%. I think that some users are being hang so the java memory doesn’t free and arrive in 99% when the openfire go to down.

until the moment I need reboot the machine.

there is other solution for this issue ?

any tip is welcome.


what about this announcement on top of the forums

Announcement: Suffering from memory-related issues in Openfire? Read this!
  • Hide Details

Openfire up to and including version 3.6.4 (and looks like 3.7.0 too) suffers from a memory leak in its PEP component. If your Openfire server is crashing with OutOfMemoryExceptions, you might be having this problem.

As a workaround, you can disable PEP, by setting the Openfire property xmpp.pep.enabled to false.

Yes, this option is not there by default, so you have to add it and set its value to false
