We have numerous RPG programs that call Java. We do start the JVM in the RPG
and free objects in the RPG code. If you can answer Marshall's questions
that would help in identifying the problem. It could be in your RPG code or
it might be in the API.

Subject: Java batch job performance issue

We are testing our first Java application.
V7R1 JDK 6.0 32 bit.
Sending 1,000,000 single requests in batch to a remote server.

This was a stress test.

Job was constantly taking 50% CPU, very little disk.

When started, job was doing 25 api calls per second, now it is 3 after
740,000 after 18 hours.
The heap size started at 30MB and is now roughly 600MB.

The job did not error, simply slowed down.
We cancelled at this point.

The process is called from an RPGLE pgm, Java is initialized in CLLE pgm.

Any thoughts?

Thank You
