Affects Version/s: Minecraft 1.8
Fix Version/s: None
OS: Windows 7 (64 Bit)
Java: Version 8u20
CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230
After hearing that Java 8 offers a substantial performance increase on the server-side, I upgraded my server to use Java 8u20.
Although my performance issues seemed to disappear, now when some of my users get disconnected from the server (as seen from that individual's client), the actual server software (and consequently other users viewing the chat window) still registers them as being logged in. When these users log back in, the server registers them as having been logged in twice, displaying two of the same player model. We've seen this happen as many as 5 times, with the duplicate players remaining present for hours afterward. Prior to the java upgrade, this issue had never been observed.
After this happens, sometimes, although not every time, the server console begins spamming the following:
