Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-9037) ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException due to repeated IOException during indexing
Date Tue, 05 Nov 2019 22:26:00 GMT
Ilan Ginzburg created LUCENE-9037:

             Summary: ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException due to repeated IOException during indexing
                 Key: LUCENE-9037
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: core/index
    Affects Versions: 7.1
            Reporter: Ilan Ginzburg

There is a limit to the number of tokens that can be held in memory by Lucene when docs are
indexed using DocumentsWriter, then bad things happen. The limit can be reached by submitting
a really large document, by submitting a large number of documents without doing a commit
(see LUCENE-8118) or by repeatedly submitting documents that fail to get indexed in some specific
ways, leading to Lucene not cleaning up the in memory data structures that eventually overflow.

The overflow is due to a 32 bit (signed) integer wrapping around to negative territory, then
causing an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException. 

The failure path that we are reliably hitting is due to an IOException during doc tokenization.
A tokenizer implementing TokenStream throws an exception from incrementToken() which causes
indexing of that doc to fail. 

The IOException bubbles back up to DocumentsWriter.updateDocument() (or DocumentsWriter.updateDocuments()
in some other cases) where it is not treated as an AbortingException therefore it is not causing
a reset of the DocumentsWriterPerThread. On repeated failures (without any successful indexing
in between) if the upper layer (client via Solr) resubmits the doc that fails again, DocumentsWriterPerThread
will eventually cause TermsHashPerField data structures to grow and overflow, leading to an
exception stack similar to the one in LUCENE-8118 (below stack trace copied from a test run
repro on 7.1):
java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: -65536java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException:

at org.apache.lucene.index.IndexWriter.addDocument({noformat}
Using tokens composed only of lowercase letters, it takes less than 130,000,000 different
tokens (the shortest ones) to overflow TermsHashPerField.

Using a single document (composed of the 20,000 shortest lowercase tokens) submitted repeatedly
for indexing requires 6352 submissions all failing with an IOException on incrementToken()
to trigger the ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException.

A proposed fix is to treat in DocumentsWriter.updateDocument() and DocumentsWriter.updateDocuments()
an IOException in the same way we treat an AbortingException.
