At approximately 2:30pm today, the VT IM Services froze due to a Java OutOfMemoryError that was caused by a bug in the PEP (Personal Event Protocol; XEP-0163) component of the Openfire IP server that results in a memory leak.
Until the bug has been resolved, I have disabled the PEP component of the server. This component is used for communicating the following information:
Tune: Communicate information about music to which a user is listening.
Mood: User moods, such as whether a person is currently happy, sad, angy, or annoyed.
GeoLocation: Information about the current geographical or physical location.
Activity: Extended presence data about user activities.
Once the bug has been reported as fixed and proper testing has been performed, the component will be re-enabled.
