Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5457) Memory is not freed after OutOfMemoryError, thus preventing Derby from recovering
Date Wed, 12 Oct 2011 09:13:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5457?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13125675#comment-13125675

Kristian Waagan commented on DERBY-5457:

It would be interesting to see if DERBY-5271 addresses your problem, but to figure that out
you have to test with the latest 10.8.2 release candidate.
Note that the community is still testing RC3, it may or may not end up as the final 10.8.2
release. If you are interested in testing it - using it in production is discouraged until
the vote passes and the release is made public - it can be found here: http://people.apache.org/~myrnavl/derby-

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5457
>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions:
>         Environment: Derby Server on Windows 7 with Derby JDBC Client
connections. Client uses OpenJPA as ORM Provider
>            Reporter: Dominik Stadler
>              Labels: memory
>         Attachments: GC Root of the object that keeps all the memory.jpg, One instance
of RAMTransaction keeps 700M.jpg
> After some uptime, my Derby Server goes OOM with the following errors:
> {quote}
> 2011-10-03 10:35:21.002 GMT : Security manager installed using the Basic server security
> 2011-10-03 10:35:23.295 GMT : Apache Derby Network Server - - (999685) started
and ready to accept connections on port 11527
> Exception in thread "DRDAConnThread_12" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
> Exception in thread "NetworkServerThread_2" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit
> Exception in thread "DRDAConnThread_3" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit
> {quote}
> I suspect that I create transactions that are too big, so the OOM is not really of concern
to me here untill I have investigated the actual cause. 
> However I would expect the Derby Server to recover from this situation as soon as the
connection to the Client application is closed, but this does not seem to happen, I have memory
dumps from a point in time when the Client was already closed and they show that there are
still large instances of RAMTransaction kept in memory. 
> I will attach screenshots from MAT which shows the memory usage and the objects keeping
this in memory, please adjust handling of OOM so that the memory is freed here.
