Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-4536) potential memory leak with annotationActionValidatorManager
Date Wed, 19 Aug 2015 09:11:45 GMT


Lukasz Lenart commented on WW-4536:

Thanks for the heap dump!

I see the following solutions here:
- extend {{SkipValidation}} annotation (or introduce a new one) to allow mark the whole class
to be skipped
- make {{buildValidatorKey}} a non-static method to allow easlly override it - this will help
with keys like this one {{org/tdar/struts/action/SlugViewAction-123456-validation.xml}} where
it should be the same key for all the actions ( {{org/tdar/struts/action/SlugViewAction-validation.xml}}
- introduce an {{excluded}} classes parameter, ie. {{excludedClasses=java.lang.Object, com.opensymphony.xwork2.Preparable,

> We've recently been having issues with our app crashing and trying to track down the
root causes.  One of the things we've seen is that over the course of 1 day, 50% of our memory
(almost 620 MB of 1.2 GB)  is allocated to "com.opensymphony.xwork.validator.AnnotationActionValidatorManager"
according to the heap dump. We also see millions of entries in two SynchronizedMap's:
> * validatorCache (1,635,019  entries)
> * validatorFileCache (87,321 entries)
> Looking through the entries in the validator cache, we se entries for every unique page
browsed within the app. Note: we're using staticParam mapping and NamedVariable PatternMatching
in action names e.g. {{"$\{id\}/$\{slug\}"}} so effectively every url is unique.
> Looking at the source code, should these maps perhaps be "WeakHashMaps" or WeakReferences
so that they're disposed of?
> (source code to the app is here: )
