Description Lami Akagwu 2011-09-08 16:14:22 UTC
Description of problem:

An issue with the compiler optimisations, introduced in update 25, triggers a jvm crash in jdk 1.6 update 26

It is fixed in jdk 1.6 update 27.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Affects jdk 1.6 update 25 and 26

How reproducible:
I did not reproduce it myself, but here is a snippet of the ticket from the customer

After updating Oracle JDK 1.6 on the 32-bit RHEL5 server to from java-1.6.0-sun- to java-1.6.0-sun- Tomcat start up fails.
JVM crashed with the following in the crash log

# There is insufficient memory for the Java Runtime Environment to continue.
# Native memory allocation (malloc) failed to allocate 131080 bytes for Chunk::new
# Possible reasons:
#   The system is out of physical RAM or swap space
#   In 32 bit mode, the process size limit was hit
# Possible solutions:
#   Reduce memory load on the system
#   Increase physical memory or swap space
#   Check if swap backing store is full
#   Use 64 bit Java on a 64 bit OS
#   Decrease Java heap size (-Xmx/-Xms)
#   Decrease number of Java threads
#   Decrease Java thread stack sizes (-Xss)
#   Set larger code cache with -XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=
# This output file may be truncated or incomplete.
#  Out of Memory Error (allocation.cpp:317), pid=12234, tid=589777808
# JRE version: 6.0_26-b03
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (20.1-b02 mixed mode linux-x86 )

Currently I can not ship sun java 6 into RHN, but I hope  blockers wil be removed asap, and then sun jdk will be shipped very fast.
