Java heap space


Caused by:

java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space



I haven’t seen it myself, but it looks like this thread:

Covers the problem you are having, and suggests that it’s not a leak as such, just that Java’s default memory allocation is not enough for an in-use Openfire server.

How do you pass more than one variable to the INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS= line?

INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS=“A B C” if you want to pass A, B and C.

You may also want to take a look at JVM Settings and Debugging.

Sounds good. I made the changes, and so far so good. Today will be the test. Thanks for all your help. I will let you know if the issue occurs again.
