I don’t see any other discussions related to this, so I want to see if anyone else is seeing these problems.
We installed and were running an Openfire 3.6.4 server and have repeated run into the bug which seems to be triggered by Adium which allows a null jid to be inserted into the ofmucmember table, which makes managing these lists a bit problematic. To attempt to avoid this problem we upgraded recently to 3.7.0beta, which contains a fix for this issue, but ever since upgrading, the server is running out of Java heap daily, where previously it never got above 32 out of 123MB on the front server status page.
Is anyone else seeing memory usage/leak problems with 3.7.0beta? We’re running the following setup:
Openfire 3.7.0beta installed from the RPM with the included JVM (upgraded from the 3.6.4 package)
PostgreSQL 8.1.18 backend
LDAP user/group backend
We’re about to back out and restore to 3.6.4, because we can’t take the daily hits here with our users. I’ve been running Openfire since it was Jive Messenger and have never had problems with it running out of memory before - particularly not on a daily basis.
