      Description

      This problem was first observed in Apache Geode 1.11.0. The problem was not present in Apache Geode 1.9.2. This problem is an issue for Apache Geode 1.10 as well!

      After upgrading Spring Session for Apache Geode (SSDG) 2.3 to Spring Data for Apache Geode (SDG) Neumann/2.3, which is based on Apache Geode 1.11, this problem with SSDG's test suite started occurring.

      Spring Session for Apache Geode (SSDG) 2.2, which is based on Spring Data for Apache Geode (SDG) Moore/2.2, pulls in Apache Geode 1.9.2. This problem did not occur in SSDG 2.2. with Apache Geode 1.9.2.

      Out of curiosity, I wondered whether this problem affects (i.e. was actually introduced in) Apache Geode 1.10.0. So, I configured SSDG 2.3 to pull in SDG Moore/2.2 but run with Apache Geode 1.10. The problem occurred with Apache Geode 1.10 as well!

      The SSDG test class in question, affected by Geode's deficiencies, is the MultiThreadedHighlyConcurrentClientServerSessionOperationsIntegrationTests.

      The test class was modeled after a customer UC, who were using Spring Session and Apache Geode/Pivotal GemFire as the HTTP Session state management provider, therefore it simulates their highly concurrent environment.

      The test class has 2 primary parameters: Thread Count and the Workload Size.

      The "Workload Size" should not be confused with the "Payload Size" of the individual objects passed to the Geode data access operations (i.e. gets, puts, removes). The "Workload Size" merely determines the number of get, put or remove operations performed on the (Session) Region over the duration of the test run. Certain operations are "favored" over others, therefore the number of gets, puts and removes is weighted.

      The "Payload" in this case is a (HTTP) Session object and the "size" is directly proportional to the number of Session attributes stored in the Session.

      As you can see from the test class configuration in SSDG 2.2, the Thread Count was set to 180 and the Workload Size (or number of Region operations) was set to 10,000.

      This had to be significantly adjusted in SSDG 2.3 using Apache Geode 1.11 (and, as it turns out, Apache Geode 1.10 as well), as can be seen in the 2.3.0.M1 release bits source, here.

      It turns out different combinations of the Thread Count (number of workers, or "concurrent Sessions") and Workload Size ultimately determine whether this test class passes or not.

      In other words, if I increase the Thread Count, then the Workload Size must decrease, otherwise the test fails! If I increase the Workload Size, then the Thread Count must decrease, otherwise again the test fails!

      I tried with different combinations of Thread Count and Workload Size until the test passed. More often than not 180 Threads with 3000 Regions operations worked, but was right on the cusp of failing, therefore, I settled on 180 Threads (which nearly matches the customers environment of 200 concurrent client Sessions) and 2000 concurrent Region operations.

      The point of the test class is to assert the state of the Session is consistent at the end of the test run.

      However, before this test can even finish, the client, as in the ClientCache instance, starts failing with Exceptions, specifically:

      Attached to this issue are log output files from each of my runs using Apache Geode 1.10 and 1.11.

      The log files serve 2 purposes: 1) to show the version of Apache Geode used and 2) the errors occurs on the client and server during the run.

      Any lines in the log output prefixed with "[FORK]" originates from the cache server. The other lines come from the client. There is only a single client and server in this test case.

      It takes a bit of initial time during the run for the failures to start occurring, which is why this seems like a resource utilization problem.

      After first, I suspected issues with the client Pool configuration, or CacheServer configuration, adjusting timeouts and so on. I even suspected memory being an issue for the client and server processes, upping each to 2 GB+. However, it turns out none of the changes made a bit of difference. And the truth of the matter is, this (existing) configuration worked seamlessly until I upgraded to Apache Geode 1.10+ (specifically, 1.11).
