Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-4536) potential memory leak with annotationActionValidatorManager
Date Wed, 19 Aug 2015 19:14:45 GMT


adam brin commented on WW-4536:

I'd suggest a slightly different tact. From the user perspective @SkipValidation should only
need to be applied in a cases where there are two actions on the same class and one requires
a validate() method. Same with an exclude method I would thing. Otherwise, you're putting
the onus on the developer to know that they need to manage a memory issue that wouldn't be
apparent to them :

* it seems like the issue we're seeing is directly related to the parameterized action name.
Is there a way to get at the parameterized action name ahead of being translated e.g. {{/namespace/actionName/\\{param\\}}}
 instead of {{/namespace/actionName/foo}}? This would reduce the footprint and potential size
of these actions significantly.  If possible, I'd suggest adjusting the default logic to use
the pre-interpolated version if possible
* separately, I would suggest, if possible, to stop tracking Interfaces and AbstractClasses

* Finally, I definitely would suggest making {{buildValidatorKey}} not static to make overrides

It occurs to ask -- are we using these paramaterized actions in an unexpected way? Is there
a better way for us to do what we're doing?  We went down this route to try and move logic
out of a URLRewrite engine.

> 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: )
