Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11526) Memory leak in Bzip2Compressor and Bzip2Decompressor
Date Thu, 12 Mar 2015 21:04:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11526?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14359408#comment-14359408

Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-11526:
----------------------------------------

Hello [~oae].  This bug would have been a small one-time leak per process during codec initialization.
 There would not have been an additional leak per file.  I doubt the effect of this leak would
have been noticeable in any realistic usage scenario.

> The use of JNI's GetStringUTFChars should be paired with ReleaseStringUTFChars or else
the utf-8 char* created by Java's JNI implementation is leaked. It isn't in Bzip2Decompressor.c:

> A less error-prone way of handling JNI resources like local references and UTF strings
is to use a smart pointer like the Apache licensed code in Android's ScopedLocalRef and ScopedUtfChars:
> https://android.googlesource.com/platform/libnativehelper/+/jb-mr1.1-dev-plus-aosp/include/nativehelper/ScopedLocalRef.h
> https://android.googlesource.com/platform/libnativehelper/+/jb-mr1.1-dev-plus-aosp/include/nativehelper/ScopedUtfChars.h
