Subject [jira] [Created] (CURATOR-354) GzipCompressionProvider leaks native memory
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2016 20:28:21 GMT
Evan Pollan created CURATOR-354:

             Summary: GzipCompressionProvider leaks native memory
                 Key: CURATOR-354
             Project: Apache Curator
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.11.0
            Reporter: Evan Pollan
            Assignee: Jordan Zimmerman

Both compress and decompress instantiate GZIP streams, use them, and don't close them.  The
java util deflate/inflate streams use JNI to leverage zlib, including the allocation of a
native, off-heap buffer.  

These JNI buffer handles are released when the containing stream is closed.  They're also
released by the finalize() method on, _but_ it looks as if
the native memory can pile up quickly enough in certain use cases where the JVM is OOM killed
before the finalizer does its thing.

Fix is to explicitly close these streams after they're used.
