It may be possible for temporary files to accumulator until the Solr process is shut down


    • Type: Bug Bug
    • Status: Open
    • Priority: Major Major
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 1.4.1, 1.5
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: update


      While researching SOLR-1951, the behavior of commons-fileupload in handling multipart form posts came into question. commons-fileupload creates a temporary file for the main content area of such posts, and purportedly has a background thread which cleans up these files. However, Mark Miller discovered that the javadoc in this matter may be incorrect, and that commons-fileupload may in fact just be adding files to the JVM's list of files needing cleanup on exit.

      If so, this will show up in two ways: first, temporary files will accumulate in the area. Second, non-heap memory for the JVM will slowly increase over time (since the file pointers the JVM tracks in this way are not kept in the java heap).

      I will attach a potential fix; however, this ticket should be viewed as a workitem for the need for further research in this area.
