Last updated on SEPTEMBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 6.0.0 to 7.0.0 [Release 6.0 to 7.0.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The memory footprint of the imapd process(es) of the Messaging Server 6.x is slowly but continuously growing over time, although the total number of concurrent sessions is low (eg. 1000  sessions).

Running pmap against one of the imap processes shows the heap is growing continuously.
