well it seems your JIT compiler is crashing so you should probably get the mem dump from the process and send it to whoever creates the FreeBSD JVM you're running on.
Admired and respected Juda:
We did the JAVA_OPTS modifications, after trying:
with the same crashing.
When we looked the jboss-3.0.6-src we thougth
that jikes could be a solution, but we were not
sure by then.
Really we think you are right (as always), please suggest us a jvm.

you could try older versions (1.3.1) they should be slightly more stable.
the same here, anyone has found another solution????
Could it be a FreeBSE ;^) problem?
Having JBoss3.0.6 running on my Test PC (Win2K), my Laptop (WinXP) and my WebServer (Linux, SuSE 7.X), all with an JDK1.4.1 (sun) without any of those problems.
Unless you read of a bug fix on JavaSoft, give it up. This is a known (using "known" loosely as this problem isn't advertised very well), hard-to-reproduce JVM bug with the -server option. Don't ask me for the JavaSoft link -- I was only too happy to dismiss this problem last autumn, and haven't bothered to check for updates since. Back then I first thought Linux was the problem because it crashed on Linux but was fine under Windows. Eventually it dawned on me that run.bat differed from run.sh: no "-server" in the Windows script! We then reproduced the problem in Windows.
Have you determined that you absolutely need "-server"? In our testing we stress tested applications without it and the performance was just fine for our needs. Actually, we gave the server a real beating for days and the JVM held up and response times were just fine. In fact, I'd venture a guess that these forums run without it.
