    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Critical
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 1.6.0
    • Fix Version/s: 1.8.0
    • Component/s: Channel, Sinks+Sources
    • Labels:
    • Environment:


      We are finding that around after an hour or so of heavy processing of Flume data in an agent we are getting the following exception. This is after processing about 5-7 k lines/second during that time.

      The configuration of this agent is using a Kafka source, the one that comes with 1.6.0.

      It is also using a Memory channel, and a Thrift sink.

      at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:745)

      The above error is from standard error when running the Flume agent. The effect is that the "SinkRunner-PollingRunner-DefaultSinkProcessor" thread disappears from the agent, this can be seen on a JMX console.
      For us, this means that the Flume agent needs to get restarted. It is an error that is terminal in that instance of the Java process due to the thread disappearing as a result.

      It sounds like something in JDK 7+ got stricter?!
