Description of problem:
engine runs OOM after 1835 rest actions.
seems like there is class loader leak around: 

which runs by 'Worker' Threads and 'org.ovirt.thread.pool'

the use case drives by QE engine that serve many jenkins jobs.

reproduced the bug on top synthetic engine required.

on other hand QE Automation will double check their automation code for risky areas such as (api.disconnect).

link for heap file:

update the bug with further more information ASAP.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. engine with 2GB ram.
2. 734 tests 2.5 times per day till the problem happens (1835 rest actions)

Actual results:
OOM after a while.

Expected results:
Continues Hours Operation

how many connections jenkins handle?
is it connection per test ? or team or one connection for all?

What that heap dump shows is that the server has created 44 instances of the "com.sun.xml.bind.v2.runtime.JAXBContextImpl" class. Instances of this class store all the information required to convert any of the objects used by the RESTAPI to/from XML, and each of them consumes approx 22 MiB, for a total of approx 115 MiB.

All these "JAXBContextImpl" instances are created by the Resteasy builtin JAXB provider "org.jboss.resteasy.plugins.providers.jaxb.JAXBContextWrapper" and stored in a cache indexed by type of object:

  DataCenter -> First instance
  Cluster -> Second instance
  VM -> Third instance

In general these instances may contain different information, but in our case all of them are identical, so one would be enough, but this isn't how the builtin JAXB provider works.

If we want to improve this we need to backport the following change, which introduces a custom message body writer that creates only one JAXB context implementation:

  restapi: JAXB provider

Oved, please set the 3.5.z flag and acks if you want this backported.

Following comment by oourfali@redhat.com on August 17 at 12:10:09, 2015

Sounds like we should. 
I've set flags and target release accordingly.

Following comment by ncredi@redhat.com on August 17 at 12:43:23, 2015

one per execution

Following comment by juan.hernandez@redhat.com on August 17 at 13:53:58, 2015

The two backported patches should fix this issue. To verify that the issue is fixed check that the number of instances of the JAXBContextImpl classes doesn't increase when new types of objects are requested via the RESTAPI:

  # ps -u ovirt | grep java
  22143 ?        00:00:24 java

  # su - ovirt -s /bin/sh

  $ jmap -histo 22143 | grep 'JAXBContextImpl$'
  1057: 4 352 com.sun.xml.bind.v2.runtime.JAXBContextImp

Before the fix the number of instances will increase when new types of objects are requested. After the fix the number of instances (the second column, 4 in the example above) should stay constant.

Verified based on the latest automation run.

Issue was not reproduced after runnign several test cycles on the same system.

Verified using vt17.1
