Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6011) Derby performs very badly (seems to deadlock and timeout) in very simple multi-threaded tests
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2013 04:56:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6011?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13555857#comment-13555857
] 

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-6011:
--------------------------------------

I don't know this code, but reading your comments and looking at code and patch, the explanation
and patch seem reasonable to me.

I think adding a regression tests as you suggest is a good idea, for optimizer changes it
would be especially good to have more regression tests since change in one location can easily
have impact elsewhere due to the nature of the problem. 

It seems that this change wouldn't be harmful in a join context though, if anything it would
inform the optimizer better on the branch cost.

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 10.7.1.1, 10.8.2.2, 10.9.1.0
>         Environment: Lenovo laptop with SSD's, Windows 7, 64-bit, Sun JDK 1.6.xx

> The Apache ManifoldCF project supports Derby as one of its underlying databases.  Simple
tests, however, demonstrate that Derby is apparently deadlocking and timing out repeatedly
under multi-thread conditions.  This problem is long-standing, and is not exhibited by any
other database ManifoldCF supports, and makes a simple test take between 6x and 12x as long.
> There is a trivial test with demonstrates the problem vs. other databases.  Please do
the following (once you have java 1.6+, svn 1.7+, and ant 1.7+ available):
> (1) Check out https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/manifoldcf/trunk
> (2) Run the following ant target to download the dependencies: "ant make-core-deps"
> (3) Run the Derby test: "ant run-rss-tests-derby" . Note the time required - at least
180 seconds, can be up to 360 seconds.
> (4) Run the equivalent HSQLDB test: "ant run-rss-tests-HSQLDB".  This test takes about
31 seconds to run.
> The output of the Derby test can be found in the directory "tests/rss/test-derby-output".
 Have a look at manifoldcf.log, where all long-running queries are reported.  Derby.log is
also included, which shows only that during the test's cleanup phase the database is deleted
before it is shutdown, which is not pertinent to the performance issue.
> I am available to assist with ManifoldCF, if that seems to be required.
