I'm trying to sell JIRA & the Agile plugin to my boss, so I've downloaded and installed JIRA on a Digital Ocean droplet with 1GB of RAM and 30 GB SSD. It's a bit slow, but usable. One problem I've run into is that it occasionally just dumps core.
catalina.out doesn't log anything problematic as far as I can tell, but if I run with jira-run.sh -df things work fine for a while, then I get unceremoniously dumped to the command prompt as follows:

Killed (core dumped)
I'm kind of at a loss to know where to begin to debug this. Does anyone have any suggestions?
> Killed (core dumped)
That pretty much says Jira is being killed from the outside by something else. If it were Jira falling over and creating a core dump, you'd have a load of other stuff going into the log, and almost certainly nothing saying "killed".
I'm afraid you need to look at what your root users and operating system are doing - it sounds like something is deciding to kill Jira for some reason.
(On the "slow" point - it's really good to put Jira's index on an SSD - that has doubled or tripled parts of the performance stats I've seen, but the memory. That's a bit low. How much are you giving to the JVM running Jira and how much are you leaving for the operating system to use?)
