Filr 24.2 Memory leak?

Hi. 

I have several Filr Appliances at customers, pretty much in default config (20GB memory, 9GB Java memory heap), which eventually run out of memory. Further checking reveals, that Java itself is consuming virtually all the VMs memory (18-19GB).

Here's some excerpt from PMAP. Too much to post in full here, but there's no obvious offender, just thousands and thousands of small memory allocations that add up to almost 10G:

1793:   /usr/lib64/jvm/java/bin/java -Djava.util.logging.config.file=/opt/novell/filr/apache-tomcat/conf/logging.properties -Djava.util.logging.manager=org.apache.juli.ClassLoaderLogManager -Djava.awt.headless=true -Dibmjdkonly.javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory=org.apache.xalan.processor.TransformerFactoryImpl -Djdk.tls.ephemeralDHKeySize=2048 -Djava.protocol.handler.pkgs=org.apache.catalina.webresources -Dorg.apache.catalina.security.SecurityListener.UMASK=0027 -Xms9g -Xmx9g -Xss2m -XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=512m

Anybody else, before I open a SR?

  • Maybe.

    I have some Filr environments which die from day to day. No regularity.

    A case has been opened (some months ago) but no solution. 

    Therefore I have a small cron job which restarts filr in those cases.

    And logs it to a text file
    and logs memory situation before restart
    and sends a mail attaching this information to someone
    and runs the FilrInfo script to gather information for support ...
