Subject [jira] [Updated] (CURATOR-105) Memory leak when using service providers
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2014 16:42:15 GMT


Joe Littlejohn updated CURATOR-105:


Run against a Zookeeper instance with a service registered to see the heap grow. I've been
unable to replicate the same problem when using the TestingServer.

> 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:
