Subject Re: NullPointerException in NioEndpoint under load (but not only)
Date Tue, 11 Aug 2015 20:57:43 GMT
Hello,

Never had any feedback on this, but I think I'm running into this bug:
https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=57943

At least, setting the socket.bufferPool to 0 tremendously helped and I 
am not seeing this excpetion anymore.

Waiting for 7.0.64 release to upgrade but I have good hope.
