Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-3654) Log4J logging of stack trace may deadlock JRockit in TestFileSystem
Date Mon, 07 Jul 2008 13:29:32 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3654?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Steve Loughran updated HADOOP-3654:
-----------------------------------

    Attachment: hadoop-3654.patch

-this turns off line/file logging, and so stops deadlocks on BEA JRockit(R) (build R27.4.0-90-89592-1.6.0_02-20070928-1715-linux-x86_64,
compiled mode). It may make test runs slightly faster too, as every log statement with line
numbers requires an exception to be created and its stack extracted. 

-the old appender is there to be switched on in emergency
-thread and extra context logging have been inserted as thread info is useful for separating
different sources of messages.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: conf
>    Affects Versions: 0.19.0
>         Environment: Ubuntu 8.04 x86_64 4-way running java version "1.6.0_02"
> Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_02-b05)
> BEA JRockit(R) (build R27.4.0-90-89592-1.6.0_02-20070928-1715-linux-x86_64, compiled

> This is being added as a bugrep so that other people can find it, and the workaround
> 1. On my machine TestFileSystem will hang, even overnight -even though the build was
set with a timeout. 
> 2. halting the build left a JVM running; it was not being killed.
> 3. Under the IDE, the main thread appears hung in the native library call to get a stack
trace, somewhere inside Log4J
> 4. the IDE could not halt the build, and could not be shut down cleanly either
> The fix for this problem was to edit conf/log4j.properties and switch to a log4J log
pattern that did not print the line of the code
> log4j.appender.console.layout.ConversionPattern=%-4r %-5p %c %x - %m%n
> Given that working out a stack trace can be an expensive call, and that it can apparently
hang some JVMs, perhaps it should not be the default.
