Ran into the situation of oome on the client : java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Direct buffer memory.
When we encounter an unhandled exception during channel write at RpcClientImpl
we end up leaving the connection open. This becomes especially problematic when we get an unhandled exception between writing the length of our request on the channel and subsequently writing the params and cellblocks
After reading the length rs allocates a bb and expects data to be filled. However when we encounter an exception during param write we release the writelock in rpcclientimpl and do not close the connection, the exception is handled at AbstractRpcClient.callBlockingMethod and retried. Now the next client request to the same rs writes to the channel however the server interprets this as part of the previous request and errors out during proto conversion when processing the request since its considered malformed(in the worst case this might be misinterpreted as wrong data?). Now the remaining data of the current request is read(the current request's size > prev request's allocated partially filled bytebuffer) and is misinterpreted as the size of new request, in my case this was in gbs. All the client requests time out since this bytebuffer is never completely filled. We should close the connection for any Throwable and not just ioexception.
