Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2429) Shell does not clean up JLine ConsoleReader, leaks threads
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2014 16:28:45 GMT


ASF subversion and git services commented on ACCUMULO-2429:

Commit 8acdf534ceb92627075a1417e61c5e14790ee9d8 in accumulo's branch refs/heads/1.6.0-SNAPSHOT
from [~bhavanki]
[;h=8acdf53 ]

ACCUMULO-2429 Add shell shutdown for thread cleanup

The JLine 2 ConsoleReader used by Shell spawns a thread which should be cleaned up when
done with the Shell. Otherwise, the thread leaks, taking up resources when the shell is
used programmatically. This commit adds a shutdown() method to Shell for cleaning up the
thread. This enables ShellServerIT to pass reliably and not flood the OS with leaked

> The shell uses the JLine {{ConsoleReader}} class. That class spawns a thread on construction
(tsk-tsk) for its internal non-blocking input stream representation. If the {{ConsoleReader}}
is not shut down properly, the thread keeps running. This is particularly a problem when running
{{ShellServerIT}} under 1.6 and later; the JVM can run out of memory to allocate threads and
fail the test.
