      With pmz3160sr2ifix-20081021_01(SR2+IZ32776+IZ33456 there were 6 javacore files produced during the test run with jvm crashes shutting down network server.

      1TISIGINFO Dump Event "systhrow" (00040000) Detail "java/lang/OutOfMemoryError" "native memory exhausted" received
      1TIDATETIME Date: 2009/04/16 at 23:04:20

      The command line in two javacore was starting the replication run.

      1CICMDLINE /u/vanlm/pmz3160sr2ifx-20081021_01/J6.0/bin/java -Dderby.tests.trace=true -Dtest.serverHost=localhost -Dtest.serverPort=1527 -Dtest.inserts=10000 -Dtest.commitFreq=1000 -classpath .:/u/vanlm/10.5/jars/derbyrun.jar:/u/vanlm/10.5/jars/junit.jar:/u/vanlm/10.5/jars/derbyTesting.jar:/u/vanlm/10.5/jars/jakarta-oro-2.0.8.jar junit.textui.TestRunner org.apache.derbyTesting.functionTests.tests.replicationTests.ReplicationTestRun

      I never knew the replication run was launched in another process like this.

      The others were just simple server shutdowns:
      1CICMDLINE /u/vanlm/pmz3160sr2ifx-20081021_01/J6.0/bin/java -Dderby.infolog.append=true -cp .:/u/vanlm/10.5/jars/derbyrun.jar:/u/vanlm/10.5/jars/junit.jar:/u/vanlm/10.5/jars/derbyTesting.jar:/u/vanlm/10.5/jars/jakarta-oro-2.0.8.jar org.apache.derby.drda.NetworkServerControl shutdown -h localhost -p 4527

      It is not clear to me how a simple shutdown could run out of native memory, since it only simply starts java and writes a few bytes to a socket to shutdown the server.

      Then 40 minutes later the system shutdown with complaints that it was out of AUX space

      09106 23:40:36.76 00000010 *IRA200E AUXILIARY STORAGE SHORTAGE

      It appears the Aux space issue occurred because there was not sufficient space to write the dumps from the prior events, but it is not clear why it didn't happen for 40 minutes.

      The crashes did not cause any tests to fail and the run completed reporting only:
      There was 1 failure:
      1) testMkdirsInvalidAbsolute(org.apache.derbyTesting.unitTests.junit.VirtualFileTest)junit.framework.AssertionFailedErro

      Tests run: 10939, Failures: 1, Errors: 0

      I did not notice this happening with the 64bit jvm when I ran against RC1 but there is a chance that it occurred and I didn't notice beaause it does not actually cause tests to fail for some reason.
