Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-2740) Using static queue as a reply queue in InOut pattern causes memory leak
Date Tue, 08 Nov 2011 23:11:54 GMT


David Valeri commented on CAMEL-2740:

I have attached a screen shot showing memory usage for the attached test case.  The attached
test case uses a simple JUnit test to throw a bunch of small messages at JMS with the InOut
MEP.  The test case uses the asynch capabilities of the ProducerTemplate to easily ramp up
the traffic.  It doesn't wait for the generated Futures so it isn't really usable for correctness
testing, it is just intended to reproduce the issue.  Also note that killing the build will
likely not terminate the forked JVM.

It takes less than 8K messages to consume the available memory.  The test crawls along for
a bit after this point and eventually runs out of memory and crashes somewhere in the low
8K message range.  It only takes a couple minutes to reach this point.  Based on real world
observation, it would appear that the issue is not driven by message frequency but by message
numbers.  That is, it can take a minute or a week to encounter enough messages, but eventually
you run out of memory.

The heap is occupied mostly by character arrays that appear to contain message IDs / correlation
IDs.  I did not traverse the object graph in the heap, but it would appear that there is some
sort of issue with JMS filters or connections not getting cleaned up.  I did not attach the
heap dump as it is trivial to generate from the attached test code.

Removing the replyTo URI parameter and using a temp destination for replies resolves the issue.
 Memory usage stays in an acceptable range and message throughput is relatively constant,
although does appear to slow slightly over time for a currently unknown reason.

on OSX in a stand alone unit test.

> I am running JBoss, ActiveMQ and Camel for my application.   In the InOut pattern,  I
am using a predefined static queue as a reply queue.   After running for a while,  the memory
usage of JBoss keeps growing and growing until it hits outOfMemory error and app server is
totally hung.   I monitor the thread in jconsole,  I can see the jms connection/session keeps
growing and growing.   
> But once I switch to use temp queue for InOut pattern,  this problem goes away.
