Subject [jira] [Created] (LOG4J2-505) Memory leak with org.apache.logging.log4j.core.async.AsyncLoggerConfigHelper$Log4jEventWrapper
Date Sat, 18 Jan 2014 06:50:19 GMT
Tal Liron created LOG4J2-505:

             Summary: Memory leak with org.apache.logging.log4j.core.async.AsyncLoggerConfigHelper$Log4jEventWrapper
                 Key: LOG4J2-505
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-505
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta9
            Reporter: Tal Liron

Instances of this class seem to be created but never garbage collected. Here is a jmap dump
of the problem:


Use jhat to analyze it: if you go to the instance count, you will see that the aforementioned
class is way out of control.

Some background on how I discovered this, which may help: I am currently working with the
Oracle OpenJDK team to debug a memory leak that has existed with JSR-292 (invokedynamic) that
has been present since 7u40, and also plagues OpenJDK 8 right now. The bug is prevalent in
the Nashorn engine, which is being shipped with JDK 8. Indeed, in the memory dump above, you'll
see that JSR-292 and Nashorn classes are also out of control -- but still second to the log4j
