IV80394: CRASH DURING JIT COMPILATION IN JAVA 8 ON 64-BIT BIG ENDIAN POWE R LINUX
Closed as program error.
Error Message: Segmentation fault in JIT compilation threads in function TR_BlockSplitter::synergisticDepthCalculator(...). Crash is only possible on 64-bit Big Endian POWER Linux and only when running Java 8. The problematic functionality is not enabled in versions of Java prior to Java 8 and users will not experience this issue when using those versions. . Stack Trace: N/A .
Define and set the following environment variable for the Java process: TR_DisableBlockSplitterSynergy=1. This workaround may have a very small performance penalty in some cases.
The problem is caused by a defect in the C++ compiler used to build the JIT compiler.
The JIT compiler source code has been modified to work around the C++ compiler defect. . This APAR will be fixed in the following Java Releases: 8 SR2 FP10 (184.108.40.206) 7 SR9 FP30 (220.127.116.11) 6 R1 SR8 FP20 (18.104.22.168) 7 R1 SR3 FP30 (22.214.171.124) 6 SR16 FP20 (126.96.36.199) . Contact your IBM Product's Service Team for these Service Refreshes and Fix Packs.
