Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3571) LOB locators are not released if the LOB columns are not accessed by the client
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2008 15:43:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3571?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12582698#action_12582698

Kristian Waagan commented on DERBY-3571:

Thanks for the comments Knut Anders.
This is work in progress, so the next patch will have some changes.

I will fix the typos, and also add more comments/JavaDoc. I renamed the method keepLocatorColumnAlive
to markLOBAsAccessed, in hope that it gives more meaning...
See below regarding the rest of your comments.

* NoOpLOBStateTracker
  Yes, that is a good idea. It is now a singleton.
  It is also correct that it will be used for result sets without LOBs.

* Fixed assert.

* Rewrote code block for compactness.
  On a side note, this code will only be in 10.3. For 10.4 and trunk I plan to make a few
changes so it is no longer required to know if it is a Blob or a Clob. This requires two changes;
a small refactoring (issue not yet created) and optimization 1 mentioned in my earlier comment.

I will upload a replacement patch shortly, which addresses other problems in 1a.

> If the client creates a result set containing LOB locator columns and iterates through
it without actually accessing the LOB columns, the locators are not released.
> The amount of locators and their associated LOB objects causes the server to consume
large amounts of memory and it eventually gets an OOME.
> There are a few workarounds for this bug:
>  a) Access and/or properly close the LOBs (i.e. Blob.free).
>     This is partly dependent on DERBY-2892.
>  b) Invoke Connection.commit (or rollback) periodically, which causes all locators on
the connection to be released.
