Heavy TCP traffic between client and server/Yahoo transport


This is possibly related to KR-167, but the observable symptom is different.

My client had been logged on to openfire and the MSN, IRC, AIM and Yahoo transports for several hours and all seemed normal when I noticed continuous traffic on my router port. I started wireshark and saw the traffic was all Jabber. I logged off from the transports one by one and when I logged off of yahoo, the traffic stopped. I then logged back on to the transports and things seemed normal.

A copy of the openfire debug log covering about 40 seconds of this traffic up to the disconnect is attached.


openfire 3.6.4
kraken 1.1.3beta
CentOS 5

No, it's not reproducible - at least I don't know how. I only saw it the one time.

Whoa what in the hell? That one message is coming from Openfire itself – almost as if it's failing to clean up the knowledge that it handed off that packet. Is this reproducible?
