    lots of TimeoutException

    Danny Yuan Newbie

      Hi,

      I've been getting a lot of TimeoutExceptions when the method Cache#get() is called. My cluster is set up as below:
      0. The cluster runs on JBoss Cache 3.1.0 GA. The locking scheme is MVCC. The isolation level is READ_COMMITTED.
      1. Two nodes, N1, and N2. Each node is a different machine. Each node has a cache instance.
      2. The node N1 only reads from cache. If it doesn't find an entry from its local cache, it will read from N2 via a ClusteredCacheLoader with synchronous replication.
      3. The node N2 both reads from and writes to its cache.

      If I understand it correctly, a read operation doesn't not aquire a lock, let alone a write-lock. So, why would I get many TimeoutExceptions when Cache#get() was called, as the stack trace shows? Could anyone please let me what possibly could cause this problem, and how I could solve it?

      I also noticed quite many RejectedExceptions when there were many TimeoutExceptions. Are they somehow correlated?

          It turned out I misconfigured the backend server, N2. I added a ClusteredCacheLoader to N2. Therefore, N2 would send a request to the server N1 when a cache entry didn't exist or was evicted. However, since N1 was the server that initiated requests using ClusteredCacheLoader, deadlocks ensued when timing was right.
