Affects Version/s: 1.9.0
Fix Version/s: 1.11.0
See the details in
DRILL-5157. The Parquet async reader uses the Snappy library. If the call into Snappy fails (in my case, due to missing dependency management in the Drill pom.xml file), the Parquet reader fails (as it should.)
Unfortunately, the Parquet reader leaks memory which cause IllegalStateException errors in production, assertion failures in unit tests.
To reproduce this the easy way (to avoid the need to undo the fix for
DRILL-5157 in Snappy dependencies), use Drill's exception injector in inject an exception at the line where we call into Snappy (See DRILL-5157 for details.)
Set a breakpoint exception for IllegalStateException you will see the memory leak.
