Wowza Verision 4.7.1 Memory/File Handle Leak?


We Use Wowza Streaming Engine for VOD with Wowza Media Cache

Since we did the upgrade to 4.7.1 we see the following problem:

When performing VOD Files under high load the Server suddeny cant access the Media Cache Source.

I have to disable/enable the network Adapter, after that the Media Cache Source is available.

This error does never appear with version 4.3.0 (Im running this Version on a second Server it has the same load)

We monitored the open file handles of the Java process, it seems they constantly increase

How can we overcome this?
