Subject Re: slices hangs if run with Multithreaded=true
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2008 21:41:14 GMT
Actually, I'm testing out another option, which is to fix up QueryImpl, 
not to do aggressive locking (at least in the isUnique method), and I 
think it will at least remove the current blocking issue.

But if you get to read the last email I sent, I think that if you use 
ParallelExecutor, you HAVE to use Multithreded=true.  Since behind the 
scenes you are executing various different queries using multiple 
threads, and they might be touching/using shared resources lower down. 
This is why I think I'm seeing all of those corrupted queries, which 
were fixed once I turned off ParallelExecutor.

So we are currently between a rock and a hard place.  We have to turn 
off ParallelExecutor to prevent corrupted queries.. until we can fix 
things up to run properly with Multithreaded=true.
