  Wowza Streaming Engine out of memory on Ubuntu 16.04

Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Wowza Streaming Engine using systemd runs out of memory within a few
  minutes on Ubuntu 16.04. Specific Java error is: Failed to get the
  session[java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: unable to create new native thread

  This appears to be related to systemd, and specific to 16.04, since
  the software functions properly in previous versions of Ubuntu
  (verified with 15.04 and 15.10) and also works in 16.04 when the
  system is reverted to upstart init.

  I have also verified that a working 15.10 installation (systemd) fails
  after upgrading to 16.04.

  Currently, we are recommending that users don't upgrade to 16.04.

  Thanks you for your assistance and I can provide additional
  information as needed.
