Community 7 upgraded Tomcat to 9.0.48 and seeing memory Leak WARNING messages...

Jump to solution

After scanning my Alfresco server I was informed all versions of Tomcat installed on Alfresco/Community prior to 9.0.48 (mine 9.0.43 installed) are affected by a vulnerability and should but upgraded.

My attempts to upgrade Tomcat to 9.0.48 or above (tried all the way to 8.0.52), resulted in the following errors in my catalina.out file.   

# systemctl stop alfresco-content
# systemctl start alfresco-content; tail -f catalina.out

Silly mistake on my part.   I thought I could just change the symlink to 9.0.48 and restart the alfresco-content service like I did for my 9.0.41 to 9.0.43 upgrade last month.  NOT THE CASE NOW!!! 

After changing tomcat ownership to my alfresco user & group, and then stopping ALL Alfresco services and starting ALL alfresco services, the memory leak messages stopped.

Not sure which step was the actual fix but here are my commands just in case someone experiences the same memory leak messages in their catalina.out logs...

 

My fix after installing tomcat9.0.48 into /opt...

# systemctl stop activemq alfresco-content alfresco-tengine-aio alfresco-search nginx

# chown -R alfresco:alfresco /opt/apache-tomcat-9.0.48

# unlink /opt/tomcat

# ln -s /opt/apache-tomcat-9.0.48 /opt/tomcat 

# systemctl start activemq alfresco-tengine-aio alfresco-search nginx

# systemctl start alfresco-content
