Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5277) Intermittent OutOfMemoryErrors in BasicSetup.testTriggersWithLOBcolumns()
Date Sat, 18 Jun 2011 01:43:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5277?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13051435#comment-13051435

Mamta A. Satoor commented on DERBY-5277:

Hi Knut, I have been looking at this jira for sometime and found out the reason behind the

First of all, you are correct that if the upgrade is from to trunk, we do not run
into OOM with the LOB columns if those LOB columns are not needed by the triggering sql and
firing triggers. This is because collects information about column in trigger action
and hence trunk can be smart about what columns should be read. As for all the other releases,
none of them collect information about columns in trigger action and hence trigger firing
sql decides to read all the columns including the LOBs even if they are not needed.

At the time of upgrade, the trigger SPSes get marked invalid correctly.But they do not get
recompiled until the time of actual trigger firing. UPDATE sql decides what columns it should
read based on what it needs and what the firing triggers will need. When UPDATE sql is collecting
all this informaiton about firing triggers, they are not get recompiled and hence UPDATE sql
used incorrect information from the invalid triggers.I will work on this jira further to see
how it can be resolved. One option would be to have UPDATE sql recognize the fact that the
triggers are invalid and hence they should be recompiled first before UPDATE looks at them
to determine what columns are needed by the triggers.

As you noticed in the jira, this problem is intermittent because it all depends on how much
memory upgrade suite has to run the tests. I guess I must have had enough memory to not run
into OOM when I ran the upgrade suite few times on my machine. One of the things I had wondered
about while adding the test in BasicSetup.testTriggersWithLOBcolumns if we could run upgrade
suite with lower memory(something like lowmem suite). Better yet would be to just run testTriggersWithLOBcolumns
test with lowmem. I will appreciate if anyone knows of a way of doing that in junit framework.

> Seen many times in the JDK 7 tests lately, and also in the Tinderbox. First occurrence
was here: http://dbtg.foundry.sun.com/derby/test/Daily/jvm1.7/testing/testlog/sol32/1134678-suitesAll_diff.txt
> (There had been no commits in the last two days before this test run, so it's difficult
to say if a recent change caused it.)
> The test case has a comment that says that it should never read the LOB into memory,
but according to the stack trace, that's exactly what's happening:
> Caused by: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
