Subject Child processes are randomly killed (occurred with <sql> and <junit>)
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2007 17:10:06 GMT


We encountered the following troubling error when dealing with long ant 
tasks. When the server is heavily loaded, ANT tasks may randomly abort 
before their natural end. Adding the verbose flag only shows the 
"[DEBUG] Process finished" log without any exception.

This was first occurring on the <sql> tasks with long running queries 
(about 2 hours to complete), but we recently had the same problem 
running a long <junit> test suite.

We are using Ant 1.7.0, triggered by the Quickbuild 
( build server.

Running these tasks when the server is lightly loaded succeeds every 
time. We suspect some sort of OOM errors, but having absolutely no error 
report nor an exception stack trace is troublesome.

Could you please help me in analyzing this problem so I can determine if 
the process gets killed because of Ant ?

Thanks in advance,

-- Alexis
