Openfire crashing frequently

I am using openfire 4.1.1 (with bosh - http-bind) on a 4 core, 16 GB ubuntu server.

Total users on openfire are about 3k, while active users at a time being around 1k.

Recently, we have been facing issues where the openfire crashing frequently (2-3 times a day) and a simple restart fixes it and makes it working.

At the time of the issue, we have the following entries in the log files:

warn.log :

org.eclipse.jetty.server.ServerConnector - Too many open files

at Method)



at org.eclipse.jetty.server.ServerConnector.accept(

at org.eclipse.jetty.server.AbstractConnector$ 500)

at org.eclipse.jetty.util.thread.QueuedThreadPool.runJob( )

at org.eclipse.jetty.util.thread.QueuedThreadPool$




org.jivesoftware.openfire.audit.spi.AuditorImpl - Internal server error


at org.jivesoftware.openfire.audit.spi.AuditorImpl.ensureMaxDays( 299)

at org.jivesoftware.openfire.audit.spi.AuditorImpl.access$100(

at org.jivesoftware.openfire.audit.spi.AuditorImpl$

at java.util.concurrent.Executors$


at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(

at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$



The file descriptors limit on this machine is 1 million.

Also, I have set "" to false, then why it is going to org.jivesoftware.openfire.audit.spi.AuditorImpl piece of code.

Server details :

Java Version: 1.8.0_131 Oracle Corporation -- OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM

Appserver: jetty/9.2.z-SNAPSHOT


If anyone is aware of this or has any ideas, please help!
