Subject [jira] [Created] (CURATOR-105) Memory leak when using service providers
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2014 16:40:14 GMT
Joe Littlejohn created CURATOR-105:

             Summary: Memory leak when using service providers
                 Key: CURATOR-105
             Project: Apache Curator
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Framework
    Affects Versions: 2.4.2, 2.4.1
         Environment: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_55-b13)
            Reporter: Joe Littlejohn

I've observed a memory leak in our production system using Curator service discovery.

If you run the attached test case and watch the process with jvisualvm you'll see that the
heap grows and grows as the test is running. Taking a heap dump will reveal thousands of ServiceInstance
and ServiceCacheImpl instances that are retained even though the provider is closed after
each usage. The references appear to be traced back to the PathChildrenCache. This appears
to be a leak that shouldn't occur if the provider is correctly closed each time.

There is also a heap dump available here:
