Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2283) Possible Memory Leak in StoredFieldsWriter
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2010 18:11:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2283?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12837919#action_12837919
] 

Tim Smith commented on LUCENE-2283:
-----------------------------------

another note is that this was on 64 bit vm

i've noticed that all the memsize calculations assume 4 byte pointers, so perhaps that can
lead to more memory being used that would otherwise be expected (although 256 MB is still
well over the 2X mem use that would potentially be expected in that case)

> StoredFieldsWriter creates a pool of PerDoc instances
> this pool will grow but never be reclaimed by any mechanism
> furthermore, each PerDoc instance contains a RAMFile.
> this RAMFile will also never be truncated (and will only ever grow) (as far as i can
tell)
> When feeding documents with large number of stored fields (or one large dominating stored
field) this can result in memory being consumed in the RAMFile but never reclaimed. Eventually,
each pooled PerDoc could grow very large, even if large documents are rare.
> Seems like there should be some attempt to reclaim memory from the PerDoc[] instance
pool (or otherwise limit the size of RAMFiles that are cached) etc
