Disable Java to prevent high memory usage

I am using FreePBX Distro 6.12.65-21 within Hyper-V and noticed that “Java” is using a large amount of RAM.

Reading around, it seems Java is used to power iSymphony which I do not need to use. I have used module admin to remove iSpymphony and Java SSH but despite a reboot, the Java process continues to start and consume a large amount of RAM.

Does anyone have any idea how I can disable / remove Java from my system?

You likely just uninstalled the isymphony freepbx module, you will need to stop the iSymphonyServer, issue the following commands:

Version 2:

service iSymphonyServer stop
chkconfig iSymphonyServer off

Version 3:

service iSymphonyServerV3 stop
chkconfig iSymphonyServerV3 off

Perfect - Thanks very much, that did the trick.

I was a little reluctant to start entering commands as I know there is a push to try to do as much as possible from within the WebUI - But I guess there are some things that just have to be done in this way.

Thanks again for your help :slight_smile:

I removed iSymphony with the module admin, then ran the update with Sys Admin Pro and it was reinstalled. Will running those commands keep it from starting up permanently?
