Troubleshooting


Problem

IBM WebSphere has published a technote for the Out of Memory problem in SDK 1.6 SR9. The out of memory problem has been experienced in Maximo environments using WebSphere 7.0.

Symptom

Java Out of Memory

Resolving The Problem

IBM WebSphere included SDK 1.6 SR9 has some memory leaks.

These memory leaks and out of memory problems have been experienced in Maximo environments using WebSphere 7.1 with Java SDK 1.6 SR9. As a result, Maximo is recommending to upgrade WebSphere to WebSphere 7.0 fixpack 35 or higher along with Java SDK.

Since the problem is in the Java SDK, it is required to update the SDK along with WebSphere.
