Alfresco hangs every morning

Hi All,

Our Alfresco server should be running 24/7 but every morning (at least two weeks ago), the JBoss application server hangs. The log says out of memory error: java heap space.

javax.faces.FacesException: Error calling action method of component with id loginForm:submit
caused by:
javax.faces.el.EvaluationException: Exception while invoking expression #{LoginBean.login}
caused by:
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space

I tried searching for ages but none solved my problem. I tried editing my alfresco.bat to look like:

set JAVA_OPTS=-Xms512m -Xmx1024m -Xss64k -server -XX:+CMSPermGenSweepingEnabled -XX:MaxPermSize=128m

I also modified the run.conf located in C:\ALFRESCO\jboss\bin\:

# Specify options to pass to the Java VM.
if [ "x$JAVA_OPTS" = "x" ]; then
   JAVA_OPTS="-server -Xms128m -Xmx512m"

but still get the said error.

What did I miss? This happens every morning for two weeks now. I need to restart JBoss so that Alfresco works again but the following morning, it stops again saying the above error. I always restart the server every morning…

Does anyone knows how to make this work? Please help anyone.

I am running Alfresco v1.4 with JBoss under windows 2003 server.

Thank you very much.
