Looks like plain jane RTM 2012, and it's JRE. I'll try installing JDK
7u45 later today when the system isn't in active use, thanks!
Is it a JRE or JDK that you are using? Windows 2012 R2 or R1?
I recall JDK 1.7u45 fixed some issues related to memory or network
sockets leaking (don't have the release notes at
hand) so I would advice upgrading the JDK. If you still encounter the
issue try downgrading to the latest JDK 1.6 update 45.
I'm guessing the issue is OS/JDK related as it didn't occur on linux/osx.
P.S. Note that the twitter river might be the culprit here in the way in
handles the network...
