Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2441) Cassandra crashes with segmentation fault on Debian 5.0 and Ubuntu 10.10
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2012 09:43:26 GMT


Richard Low commented on CASSANDRA-2441:

Tracked this down to the stack size setting.  In, the stack size is set to
128k.  From running gdb, the segfault is tracked down to a stack overflow in parse_manifest.c:234
within openjdk.  It's clear what's going on: there's a huge statically allocated variable.

Setting the stack size to 256k means Cassandra can start up with javaagent.  So we could reenable
this for openjdk if people are prepared to take the memory hit on stack size.
