Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3378) Derby's timer thread should have a name that identifies it as belong to a derby instance
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2008 18:02:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3378?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12570343#action_12570343

Serge Tsv commented on DERBY-3378:


It looks like all the created daemon threads are using a common naming convention with a "derby."
name prefix. It's possible because all the daemons are created using  a ModuleFactory#getDeamonThread(...)
method with a single implementation in BaseMonitor, which actually hardcodes the "derby."

As for a SingletonTimerFactory, I think the first step could be to hardcode a "derby." prefix
and choose some obvious name for a Timer deamon thread. And the next step could be to create
a constant for a common thread prefix and probably an utility method which will return a full
thread name by a specified name.

I do also think it won't be much effort to refactor existing code to use APIs which provide
a common thread-naming scheme, which could be implemented in a final iteration.

I think I could handle the tasks with your approval.

>            Priority: Minor
> Looking at the threads with jconsole when derby is running shows derby's timer thread
as Timer-0.
> All other derby threads are given a name starting with 'derby.', would be useful if the
same was true for the timer thread.
> In SingletonTimerFactory just use the Timer constructor that takes a name.
