How long can webMethods (6.5) run before a recommended restart? I’ve had a server run as long as 35 days before running into a heap space error. A quick restart fixed it of course, but I’d like to know how long the Integration Server should run before restarting it.
There is no such rule…
For better performance and garbage removal… have a weekly restart .
in 6.5 you can have a gc service as a scheduled service on IS which can run periodically. So its not a big issues as your servers can perpetually run forever if there is no major issue.
Best case scenario weekly restarts are are good idea.
A well tuned IS should not need weekly restarts. If you are leaking memory that would usually point to issues with configuration or service construction. Scheduling a GC is not recommended as that again masks the underlying issues.
