I have a Java Web Application that uses an OOo instance (on the same environment) started in headless mode as batch converter.
- environment is RHEL 5.5.
- The OpenOffice version is 3.1.
I've run some tests and I found that after about 1000 conversion the resident memory of the soffice process was around 99% of the total. OpenOffice finally crashed.
I would use this server as a batch converter for documents, but this memory issue is requiring a daily restart according to the medium amount of conversion request that we have.
I know that this memory issue is affecting OO since release 2. I would know if there is a solution, or if using a Windows Server instead of Linux could solve the problem.
