Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-7122) Infinite loop due to AsyncHTTPConduit read timeout with exhausted connection pool
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2016 12:16:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-7122?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15644021#comment-15644021

William Montaz commented on CXF-7122:
-------------------------------------

Hi Freeman,

use your test class, use testAsyncTimeout, debug and set a breakpoint on the getHttpresponse
first line (while(httpresponse == null). You will see that even if you consider response timeout
in the timer task, the request is still being sent and response is given back to the client.
Ok your exception in the timer task hides it but from a client/server perspective everything
happened in a nice fashion. If your client timeout, you should close the connection.

Another thing that does not work, put testTimeoutAsync in this fashion

> Using AsyncHTTPConduit, when the underlying connection pool gets exhausted, requests
waiting for a connection will lead to an infinite loop if they reach receive timeout.
> The problem occured on all versions of CXF above 3.0.5 (we did not tested other ones).

> Let's imagine a backend that's broken and leads to timeout for all requests.
> When handling requests, the cxf worker thread will eventually go in wait state (AsyncHTTPConduit:618),
with a timeout that matches the HTTPClientPolicy.setReceiveTimeout() value, waiting for the
NIO stack to complete and call notifyAll via responseCallback (AsyncHTTPConduit:455). 
> The timeout on the wait is the big problem :
> With our broken backend, the connection pool is exhausted waiting for other requests
to timeout. When a new request is made by cxf against this backend, after timeout time this
will happen :
>  - on the one side the reactor threads will get a connection from the pool and try to
write to the output stream. Waiting in the pool is not considered as receive timeout.
>  - on the other side the cxf worker thread will wake up (because of the timedout wait),
and shutdown SharedOutputBuffer and SharedInputBuffer (AsyncHTTPClient:624)
>  - reactor threads will go to infinite loop because they will try to produceContent from
a shutdown buffer (SharedOutputBuffer:120)
>  
>  From there, application recovery is compromised.
>   
>  To fix that, timeout should be handled only via the client callback (AsyncHTTPConduit:463).
