Recently, I upgraded to 3.7.1, but I am not sure if that is related to the issue at hand.
Over the past few days, Openfire becomes unresponsive to new connections. Users that are currently logged in can send/receive chats and the roster is visable, but logged off users who try to login receive a “failure to authenitcate” message in windows. Adium seems to hang on “receiving data”. The admin console doesn’t load at all either (so I can’t login and check Java memory stats on logs through the GUI).
Restarting the process doesn’t solve the issue; I have to reboot the server. Once the server comes back online everything is a-OK.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and am using a mySQL database. Anyone else experiencing similar behaviour or have any clues as to what could be wrong?
