Wildfire 2.4, Solaris 8, JVM crashes frequently


Started using Wildfire 2.4.0 on Solaris 8 a few days ago, JVM version is 1.5.0_03. We use a mysql database, and have ~125 users, with Spark and other clients. We’'re seeing the JVM crash every day, sometimes more than once. The top of the trace file is below, it always shows the same method - IQDiscoInfoHandler.handleIQ. None of the Wildfire logs show anything unusual. Has anyone else had this problem, and does anyone have any solutions?


  1. An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine:

  1. SIGBUS (0xa) at pc=0xf8816300, pid=27225, tid=65

  1. Java VM: Java HotSpot™ Server VM (1.5.0_03-b07 mixed mode)

  2. Problematic frame:

  3. j org.jivesoftware.wildfire.disco.IQDiscoInfoHandler.handleIQ(Lorg/xmpp/packet/IQ ;)Lor g/xmpp/packet/IQ;+236

Can you update to the latest version of Java (1.5.0_06)? Hotspot crashes are definitely a JVM problem and not something we have much control over in Wildfire.



Thanks Matt - we’‘re planning on doing that today. I’'ll update this thread on whether that fixes it.

Great product btw, very easy to setup and administer.

Besides updating to the latest Java version you may also want to check that your OS version includes latest patches.

Just wanted to update this thread - we upgraded to the latest JRE (1.5.0_06) and patched up the Solaris box to current levels a couple of days ago, and the problem has not occurred since.
