Subject [jira] [Created] (IGNITE-11911) GridToStringBuilder allocates redundant memory
Date Tue, 11 Jun 2019 11:56:00 GMT
Aleksey Plekhanov created IGNITE-11911:

             Summary: GridToStringBuilder allocates redundant memory
                 Key: IGNITE-11911
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IGNITE-11911
             Project: Ignite
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.7
            Reporter: Aleksey Plekhanov

A lot of classes in Ignite uses {{GridToStringBuilder}} to implement their {{toString()}}
method. {{GridToStringBuilder}} uses thread local buffer to generate string representation.
This buffer extended on demand but never shrank. On the final step {{GridToStringBuilder}}
uses java {{StringBuilder}} class to produce output string and uses own buffer size as
{{StringBuilder}} initial capacity. This leads to unnecessary memory allocation since we
only need to allocate memory for meaningful data, but not for all buffer.


public void testSB() {
    GridToStringBuilder.toString(C1.class, new C1(1_000_000));
    GridToStringBuilder.toString(C1.class, new C1(100));

public class C1 {
    private String f;

    C1(int len) {
        f = new String(new char[len]);
Here on the second line about 1 million chars StringBuilder will be allocated, but only about
100 chars needed.


Problem code (SBLimitedLength.java:293):

StringBuilder res = new StringBuilder(impl().capacity() + tailLen + 100);
Here {{length()}} method can be used instead of {{capacity()}}
