APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Error Message: The application hangs, i.e., no progress is made
    by the application, with no error message.
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    

Local fix

  • -Xjit:disableAsyncCheckRemoval works around this problem but it
    may cause slight performance degradation.
    

Problem summary

  • This problem may occur when a trusted method (i.e., a method in
    String, HashMap, or TreeMap classes) that contains a loop is
    inlined in user code.  With low probability, the JIT generates a
    code for the user loop that doesn't have a GC point.
    Now if other threads are waiting for GC to happen, and the user
    code doesn't progress until something happens in the other
    threads, there will be a deadlock. In other words, GC is waiting
    for user loop which is waiting for other threads which are
    waiting for GC.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    7.0.0 SR2
    6.0.0 SR11
    6.0.1 SR2
    5.0.0 SR14
    .
    The check that JIT uses to detect whether a loop has come from a
    trusted method has been made more accurate.
