    Object stream corruption leading to out of memory error in the CacheMarshaller

    Mukund Sundararajan Newbie

      All,

       

      We have been using the jboss cache 3.2.5 since the past three years on our production servers with no major issues. Of late we have seen  issues from two of our customer sites where the application container running the jboss cache crashed with an out of memory error. We analyzed the heap dumps from both sites and found the root cause to be the same. The cache tried to serialize an object for replication and the resulting byte array was more than 800 MB in size. Our deployment consists of two servers running on RHEL 5.5 forming two nodes of the cache, replication mode async. We further analyzed the byte stream and found out that after a certain point it is filled with a repeated pattern that continues forever. I am enclosing a portion of the byte array (below) where you can see the repeated pattern. The object that it tried to serialize was itself small in size as seen from the heap dump. Things to note are we do not synchronize when updating the object and putting it in the cache, the object has a HashSet and several Enums and we do not explicitly start transactions. We believe the issue is because of concurrent access to the HashSet while the cache was writing it to the byte array but not sure.  The issue is also not reproducible easily.

       

      The stack of the thread that crashed the JVM with out of memory error is also below -->

      A portion of the byte stream with corruption seen towards the end. The byte pattern that you see in the end continues to grow the array to > 800 MB in size.

      .........and so on

       

       

      Has anyone seen this type of an issue in the marshaller? Is it correct to assume that this is the result of concurrent modification to the HashSet in the object? Any insights will help.

       

      Thanks
