Subject [jira] [Created] (GEODE-3286) Failing to cleanup connections from ConnectionTable receiver table

             Summary: Failing to cleanup connections from ConnectionTable receiver table
                 Key: GEODE-3286
             Project: Geode
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: membership
            Reporter: Brian Rowe

This bug tracks gemfire issue 1554 (

Hello team,

A customer (VMWare) is experiencing several {{OutOfMemoryError}} on production servers, and
they believe there's a memory leak within GemFire.
Apparently 9.5GB of the heap heap is occupied by 487,828 instances of {{}},
and 7.7GB of the heap is occupied by 487,804 instances of {{}},
both referenced from the {{receivers}} attribute within the {{ConnectionTable}} class. I got
this information from the Eclipse Memory Analyzer plugin, the images are attached.
Below are some OQLs that I was able to run within the plugin, it is weird that the collection
of receivers is composed of 486.368 elements...

SELECT * FROM com.gemstone.gemfire.internal.tcp.ConnectionTable
	-> 1
SELECT receivers.size FROM com.gemstone.gemfire.internal.tcp.ConnectionTable 
	-> 486.368
SELECT * FROM com.gemstone.gemfire.internal.tcp.Connection
	-> 487.758
SELECT * FROM com.gemstone.gemfire.internal.tcp.Connection con WHERE con.stopped = true
	-> 486.461
SELECT * FROM com.gemstone.gemfire.internal.tcp.Connection con WHERE con.stopped = false
	-> 1297

That said, nothing in the statistics (maybe there's something, but I can't find it...) seems
to point to a spike in the amount of entries within the regions, neither in the current amount
of connections, nor anything to be able to explain the continuous drop of the available heap
over time (chart#freeMemory).
The heap dump (approximately 20GB) and the statistics (don't have logs yet, but they might
not be required by looking at the heap and the statistics) have been uploaded to [Google Drive|].
Just for the record, apparently we delivered to them a year and half ago as a fix
to [GEM-94|] / [GEODE-332|],
they've been running fine since then, until now. The last change in the {{ConnectionTable}}
was done to fix these issues, so if there's actually a bug within the class, it will also
exist on 8.2.5 (just a reminder to change the affected version field if required).
The issue is not reproducible at will but happens in several of their environments, yet I
haven't been able to reproduce it in my lab environment for now.
Please let me know if you need anything else to proceed.
Best regards.
