[SOLVED] Very long time to launch java

Post by Airmanbzh » Mon Jun 18, 2012 8:26 am

We use IMacro to run scripts 24/7. It works perfectly on Windows XP but on our Windows Server 2008 64bits we have a problem with the launch of java.

It will work 2-3 days and sometimes Java will not respond in our JS (time of initialisation is very very long). When it happens, Firefox 13 switches to failure-free mode and no more script can be run.

Our configuration :
  • Windows Server 2008 x64
    Firefox 13.0.1 x32(tried also with 12.x and 13.0)
    Java 7 update 5 x32
    IMacro 7.4.0.8
Thanks for any help

We found a solution to solve this problem.

If you use IMacro 24/7, process of java will create temporaries files and overload the tmp directory. Windows (with NTFS) can handle 4billions of these files but Java x32 can only manage 65536 files (2 power 16).

We created a cron job to clean the tmp directory and our problem seems solved
