I am running openfire 3.3.2 for MacOS 10.4.10 on a PowerMac G5 2.5ghtz with java 1.5.0_07 installed. It seems that after a few days java seems to eat up all of the unused processor time forcing my cpu into crawl speed. I then stop/start openfire which returns the java resource to function normally. Just when i thought this was a one time occurance it happened again today. Except I noticed something different this time. A few days ago i installed a bandwidth monitoring menu item called iStats. It was working fine except yesterday i noticed that it had my upload/download listed at ~140k/sec baically insync with my cpu being idle. I thought it was a bug or that some program/service on my computer was hogging up the bandwidth. I started stopping services and programs other than openfire but got no change. I even turned off certain services in openfire such as media proxy etc. It made no change in the bandwidth being used I then just ruled it as a bug in the stat software and chose to ignore it seeing as it’ll correct itself upon restart of the cpu. So today i had the openfire bug again. I ran the stop/start commands and noticed that after doing so the network monitor showed 0-4k/sec upon idle. Any fixes and or suggestions would be appreciated.
