Re: [libvirt-users] [libvirt] JVM crashes during GC



The same program when I execute locally (MAC 10.13.6; OpenJDK 8; Libvirt 5.2.0), mostly I end up with:

================
Starting new connection with default auth
Enter username for x.x.x.x [root]
abc
Enter abc's password for x.x.x.x
WARNING: THE ENTERED PASSWORD WILL NOT BE MASKED!
xyz
Explicit connection closure
gc'ing
gc'd
waiting.. 1
Connect finalizing..
java(95459,0x70000a270000) malloc: *** error for object 0x7facd57134b0: pointer being freed was not allocated
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
=================

Thanks & Regards

Note: A couple of times I have seen errors while closing the connection (the trace ending with virFree). Also, a few times I have seen backtraces which show the flow going via esx driver and finally failing to close connection. Unfortunately I dont have those logs anymore.

The execution results I have shared have been obtained using Libvirt built from source using the following config parameters:
# configure --prefix=/usr --localstatedir=/var --sysconfdir=/etc --with-esx=yes 

The libvirt java bindings I have taken from : https://github.com/libvirt/libvirt-java
I have added a sysout in the "finalize" method of Connect class in there, thats why the "Connect finalizing.." messages in execution results.

I am attaching the execution results. At the top of each file I have mentioned the environment details.

Following is the test program I have used:

==================================================

package org.libvirt;


import org.libvirt.jna.Libvirt;


public class LibvirtCrashTest {

void createAndDestroyDefaultAuthConnection() {

ConnectAuth ca = new ConnectAuthDefault();

try {

System.out.println("Starting new connection with default auth");

Connect connect = new Connect("esx://x.x.x.x/?no_verify=1", ca, 0);

Thread.sleep(1000);

System.out.println("Explicit connection closure");

connect.close();

Thread.sleep(5000);

} catch (Exception e) {

e.printStackTrace();

} 

}


public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

LibvirtCrashTest testInstance = new LibvirtCrashTest();


for(int counter = 0; counter < 3; counter++) {

testInstance.createAndDestroyDefaultAuthConnection();

System.out.println("gc'ing");

System.gc(); 

System.out.println("gc'd");

int tCounter = 0;

while(tCounter++ < 20) {

System.out.println("waiting.. " + tCounter); 

Thread.sleep(1000);

}

}

System.out.println("Going down...");

}


}

It could just as easily be a memory corruption bug in the ESX libvirt
driver, since that runs directly in the applicatin process as it is a
stateless client side driver.

We would probably need to have an small demo program that can reproduce
the problem in an isolated fashion, in order to try to debug it, along
with full libvirt debug logs.
