Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-4071) DWStallControl can deadlock IW if no flushes are running / pending

             Summary: DWStallControl can deadlock IW if no flushes are running / pending
                 Key: LUCENE-4071
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: core/index
    Affects Versions: 4.0
            Reporter: Simon Willnauer
            Assignee: Simon Willnauer
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 4.0

DWStallControl currently only checks if the net bytes used by all the DWPT and deletes exceeds
the stall limit (2*MAX_RAM_BUFFER). This is generally a very good default but in certain situations
we can exceed this limit even without an ongoing flush. Stalling is used to prevent IW overloading
due to slow flushes etc. which should not happen too often in practice. With a smallish RAM
Buffer and a bigger document we can easily get into the stage where we stall the DW without
a chance to free up the memory.  

I think we should make sure that a pending or running flush can free up enough memory to unstall.
