JVM crash log
Comment 1 y360 2005-08-07 03:09:34 EDT
Description of problem:
JVM 1.4.2_08 process crash

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
EL4 Update 1 with hugemem kernel 2.6.9-11

We have a Java process (JBoss application server) that persistently crashes
every day or two with segmentation fault.
We have a core dump if that's of any use. We have no way to reproduce.
Comment 2 y360 2005-08-07 08:57:37 EDT
Correction: The machine has 1GB RAM and is running the normal kernel, not hugemem
Comment 4 Jason Baron 2005-08-12 11:13:01 EDT
Can you please try the update 2 beta kernel? There have been a number of fixes.
thanks. http://people.redhat.com/~jbaron/rhel4/
Comment 5 y360 2005-08-30 08:26:49 EDT
Same crash on update 2 regular kernel as well.

Running jdk 1.4 on update 1 hugemem kernel is ok.
Running jdk 1.5 on update 1 regular kernel is ok.

The crash is therefore limited to jdk 1.4 on regular kernel update 1 & 2.

Which JVM? Have you tried a JVM from a different vendor?
Comment 7 Richard Li 2005-11-07 15:40:07 EST
Possibly related: bug 168911
Comment 8 y360 2005-11-09 03:11:45 EST
Sun's JVM, we're pretty much locked to it at the moment
Comment 10 Richard Li 2005-12-16 09:32:48 EST
Have you reported this issue with Sun? Our kernel maintainer does not think that
this is an issue with the kernel. We also do not have access to the Sun JVM
source code.
Comment 11 y360 2005-12-21 13:18:11 EST
This may well be related to Sun's JVM, we're getting crashes on normal kernel of
EL3 as well, will follow up through Sun
