Subject Re: Apache ODE 1.3.5 - In Memory Execution - How stable ?
Date Thu, 24 Jan 2013 16:41:09 GMT
Dear Arun,

Have you had a chance to take a snapshot of the memory while ode freezes
before restarting servicemix? If you investigate the memory dump you will
going to have a chance to find the leak.

regards
