Subject Java process killed by oom-killer in Ubuntu
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2012 21:33:22 GMT
Hello,
   I have an application that runs under Tomcat 7.0.23 that
periodically crashes. The java process running tomcat keeps growing in
memory until the Linux oom-killer kills the process. I do not get an
OutOfMemoryError because the memory leak is not in the Java heap. In
fact, it seems the heap is only using 4GB of the max 6GB specified in
the -Xmx parameter. Nevertheless the total memory held by the java
process keeps growing up to 16GB when the OS kills the process.
    I haven't been able to find the conditions to reproduce this
problem, so I am not able to replicate it. Nevertheless it keeps
occurring; sometimes at midnight with no user activity sometimes in
the middle of a busy day.

   The web application uses Spring/Postgres/Mongo.

   I know this is not a Tomcat related problem, but some of you may
have experience a similar problem and may have some suggestions on how
to troubleshoot it.
   I already have read many of the links that come after searching the
web for "java invoked oom-killer" but I still don't have any clue on
what causes the problem and how to solve it.
   It looks like a memory leak in native code, not java code; so my
usual java toolset is not useful.

   Tomcat runs behind nginx in a EC2 instance. The application uses
Sun (now Oracle) JDK 1.6.

   Any suggestions on what should I look at?


-Jorge
