Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-3358) ActiveMQ JMXConnectorFactory is not calling close causing thousands of threads to be created
Date Tue, 07 Jun 2011 11:31:58 GMT


Hiram Chirino commented on AMQ-3358:

Just based on the provided stack trace it looks like it's a bug in the JVM.  The JVM provides
the JMX connection handling implementation.  The ActiveMQ ManagementContext is just registering
objects in the JVM's JMX server implementation and that does not use any connections at all.

>    Affects Versions: 5.5.0

> We have run into a problem in production where our ActiveMQ 5.5 Broker eventually uses
thousands of threads. Doing a thread stack dump we have thousands of the following entries:
> "JMX server connection timeout 127937" daemon prio=10 tid=0x000000001c215000 nid=0x1734
in Object.wait() [0x00002aabd7c97000]
>    java.lang.Thread.State: TIMED_WAITING (on object monitor)
>         at java.lang.Object.wait(Native Method)
>         at com.sun.jmx.remote.internal.ServerCommunicatorAdmin$
>         - locked <0x00002b74ffe91938> (a [I)
>         at
> We are using Hyperic HQ to monitor ActiveMQ remotely over JMX.
> To reproduce the problem in a stand-alone environment (without needing Hyperic) :
> 1. Start ActiveMQ 5.5 Broker
> 2. Connect to ActiveMQ using JConsole and then disconnect
> 3. Force a thread dump on the ActiveMQ broker process as follows:
>    kill -QUIT <activemq-pid>
> 4. After every JConsole connection to the Broker process the following additional thread
is created:
> "JMX server connection timeout 128" daemon prio=5 tid=1030bd000 nid=0x1108f8000 in Object.wait()
> Under ActiveMQ 5.4.2-Fuse-03-09 we do not see this issue. Is there an existing patch
somewhere that has just not been applied to 5.5?
> Someone else with the same issue:
> We found more info on closing the JMX connection:
> We are willing to make and submit a patch with a little guidance on where we should call
the close() on JMXConnectorFactory.
> It appears the source file where the change should be made is:
> activemq-core/src/main/java/org/apache/activemq/broker/jmx/
> Any help is appreciated.
> Thank you,
> Reid
