We have been running openfire for a year or so without issues. Today I added 2 new users (now a total of 50) and the server crashed. I thought it might be the older vestion, so I updated to Openfire 4.2.3. It still happened. I found it was only using 212mb of memory, so I upped it to 512, but it used all of that up at the same speed.
I have set this in “/etc/default/openfire”
(previously I had it at 1024 for both options)
It hasn’t crashed yet, but as I refresh the server page, the memory usage will jump wildly from 30% to 80% to 50%, ect.
I’ve now allocated 6 times as much memory as it used to have, and yet it’s using almost all of it.
Is this normal for about 30 active users?
