I have been having this issue a lot lately since I have started adding more users and groups to openfire. The openfire-service.exe CPU rate is hanging around 80% to 90%. Causing CPU usage of 100%. I add my groups through AD and then add my users to those groups. I go into openfire admin console and to the groups section and click on the group I created and add that group name in the share with others in this group. It seems that the usage jumped up around this time period or shortly after. Now the Server is slow and the admin console is very slow at response. The only thing that fixes this is rebooting the server. I am running openfire 3.6.3 and the latest Spark.
Why is this happening? Please help.
