Re: UMS getting stuck, some hard to spot bug

It happened again. I now have additional info.

The system gets unusable because it hits the threads limit (cgroups). The result is being unable to fork (so it is impossible to login too). Luckily, this time i had left a shell open :mrgreen:

Long story short, the Java process "java -Xmx768M -Xss2048k -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Djna.nosys=true -classpath update.jar:ums.jar net.pms.PMS trace" has 10806 (!!!) threads. Apparently no clue from the logs.

Any ideas?

Edit: after raising the max threads number, UMS is back in working state (without restart), but it keeps leaking threads (10828 now). Soon or later it will hit the hard (32767) thread limit anyway and definitely crash the system.

Just want to jump in and I hit the same resource leak. UMS cannot create any new threads and hangs the system. I am running 8.1.0 but I believe it happens on 6.8.0, as well. Since it is not the first time, I also have a log tracking the number of threads UMS is using (by "ps -eLf") It shows the UMS runs out of all 32767 native threads at 7-ish am. I'll keep monitoring the new version.
