Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2328) IndexWriter.synced field accumulates data leading to a Memory Leak
Date Fri, 19 Mar 2010 23:10:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2328?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12847642#action_12847642
] 

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-2328:
--------------------------------------------

bq. We can have close(), sync() and closeAndSync(). Would the latter make sense?

I don't think closeAndSync could be used by Lucene, at least today.  Typically, at the time
these files are closed, Lucene has no idea whether sync is needed (ie, whether a commit()
will be called by the app before the segment gets merged).  So I don't think we should add
it now?  (Design for today).

bq. I prefer if the API will be explicit,, and I think that throwing an exception (StillOpenException?)
if sync() is called before close() is very explicit, and reasonable if accompanied by a proper
jdoc.

This would be great... I think, especially, for something as important as sync(), we should
not silently ignore you when you think you've sync'd an open file.

> I am running into a strange OutOfMemoryError. My small test application does
> index and delete some few files. This is repeated for 60k times. Optimization
> is run from every 2k times a file is indexed. Index size is 50KB. I did analyze
> the HeapDumpFile and realized that IndexWriter.synced field occupied more than
> half of the heap. That field is a private HashSet without a getter. Its task is
> to hold files which have been synced already.
> There are two calls to addAll and one call to add on synced but no remove or
> clear throughout the lifecycle of the IndexWriter instance.
> According to the Eclipse Memory Analyzer synced contains 32618 entries which
> look like file names "_e065_1.del" or "_e067.cfs"
> The index directory contains 10 files only.
> I guess synced is holding obsolete data
