Transform service - unlimited database connections

Jump to solution

Recently Alfresco Transofrm Service run out of memory (OutOfMemoryError, mXm parameter was too small) but it initiated lots (casually there are ~40connections, here it jumped in minutes to >200) of database connections (with "idle-transaction" state) which after a while resulted in not working database which resuled in not working Alfresco Repository and Share.

Is it a bug? What can i do to limit database connections? In the the Alfresco repository there is a db.pool.max parameter, is there something similar in ats?

 

In the logs I noticed something about "unlimited reties".

I'm running Alfresco Community Edition 7.2 with alfresco-transform-core-aio-boot-2.5.7.jar

I'm using this configuration to limit the number of threads in Transform Service:

@angelborroy  Thank you, I added "-Dserver.tomcat.threads.max=12 -Dserver.tomcat.threads.min=4" to JAVA_OPTS, the time will tell if it helped.

To set up ATS I relied on alfresco-ansible-deployment, It might be wise to update that config too.

I faced this issue 3 times (even after allocating over 3GB RAM to ats), each time the last processed file was xlsx, and ats run out of memory on the "Scheduled task". Maybe there is a bug somewhere?

ats log file:

Are you starting up each component on seperate host? If any of the applications using "-XX:MinRAMPercentage=50 -XX:MaxRAMPercentage=80" are on same host then we will need to reduce the numbers Otherwise heapsizes will become more than the actual memory on the host. Does adding a mem_limit takes care of this issue and caps the memory limit for each application?
