Leap-Second Triggers Loop?

At 5 PM US-Pacific, my OpenFire instance on Debian started looping. It will now loop whenever I start it. Monit reported the problem (CPU load too high) immediately after the leap-second. Coincidence, or bug?



Try to increase the java memory (Xmx value) or post which thread is looping (see http://community.igniterealtime.org/docs/DOC-1033)

This is caused by a Linux kernel bug - Quick and dirty fix is to just reboot the box.

If you do Stefan’s fix, you need to stop ntpd first, then restart it afterwards. You will also need to restart Openfire.

I did neither restart ntpd nor Openfire but ymmv.
