Subject [jira] [Commented] (VFS-640) Synchronized AbstractOriginatingFileProvider.getFileSystem is too broad
Date Thu, 24 Aug 2017 07:22:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-640?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16139696#comment-16139696

Bernd Eckenfels commented on VFS-640:
-------------------------------------

We need to be careful in case it is called recursively for layered filesystems.

> Currently (rev. 1802455) this method looks like this:
> {code:java}
>     protected synchronized FileSystem getFileSystem(final FileName rootName, final FileSystemOptions
fileSystemOptions)
>         throws FileSystemException
>     {
>         FileSystem fs = findFileSystem(rootName, fileSystemOptions);
>         if (fs == null)
>         {
>             // Need to create the file system, and cache it
>             fs = doCreateFileSystem(rootName, fileSystemOptions);
>             addFileSystem(rootName, fs);
>         }
>         return fs;
>     }
> {code}
> Given that there is a single instance of a provider per scheme, a very slow server that
is being accessed first time will block *all* other threads trying to access some other resources
via the same provider.
> We have a server that takes sometimes 20-30 seconds in doCreateFileSystem. We do not
mind the thread trying to access this method taking that long, but because of that "synchronized"
we end up having multiple threads accessing unrelated servers for the same scheme blocked.
> PS. Actually, it is not only AbstractOriginatingFileProvider. The same "provider-scoped"
lock is present in AbstractLayeredFileProvider, TemporaryFileProvider, and UrlFileProvider
