      JVM crash during C2 compilation/PhaseIdealLoop: PrintCompilation
      tells us the method being compiled is com/ibm/sslite/g.c

      This is an obfuscated class in IBM's security library, a jar which
      has caused problems in a few other bug reports, e.g. 4724509.

      No problem in -client, or in 1.4.x.

      Java heap size is only 256mb, but the core file is 2.4gb:

      Why is this core so big...? (and why does it compress so well, down to 20-something mb..)

      The native heap is what makes it large:

        3: 00026000 - 815B2000 = 2119216K (264902 pages) [heap]

      Why so large a C heap? The number "0x01315434" is written in the heap starting here...

      0x017b0ae0: 0x012cc900 0x01315434 0x01315434 0x01315434
      0x017b0af0: 0x01315434 0x01315434 0x01315434 0x01315434
      0x017b0b00: 0x01315434 0x01315434 0x01315434 0x01315434

      ...and it goes right to the end of the heap...

      2 GIGABYTES of it.... This explains the large core file, and it's very regular so
      compresses well.

      That number is a pointer to a JVM object:

      dbx>x 0x01315434/32X
      0x01315434: 0xfe533230 0x01315454 0x00000003 0x00000003
      0x01315444: 0x0000130b 0x00000000 0x000b0000 0x00001071
      0x01315454: 0x01315434 0x012cca0c 0x01315460 0xfe52e368
      0x01315464: 0x0131547c 0x00000001 0x00000001 0x0000130c
      0x01315474: 0x012b36fd 0x00000001 0x01315268 0x00000000
      0x01315484: 0x00000000 0x0017a014 0x00000000 0x0017c6ec
      0x01315494: 0x00000000 0x0017c698 0x00000000 0x0017c644
      0x013154a4: 0x00000000 0x0017c5ec 0x00000000 0x0017c598

      dbx>x 0xfe533230
      0xfe533230: __1cPCountedLoopNodeG__vtbl_ : 0xfe4b7a34
      dbx>dem __1cPCountedLoopNodeG__vtbl_

      __1cPCountedLoopNodeG__vtbl_ == CountedLoopNode::__vtbl

      By sneaky trick, that object looks like:

      dbx>print -r *(CountedLoopNode*) XXXXXXX
      *((class CountedLoopNode *) XXXXXXXX) = {
          CountedLoopNode::LoopNode::RegionNode::Node::_in = 0x1315454
          CountedLoopNode::LoopNode::RegionNode::Node::_cnt = 3U
          CountedLoopNode::LoopNode::RegionNode::Node::_max = 3U
          CountedLoopNode::LoopNode::RegionNode::Node::_idx = 4875U
          CountedLoopNode::LoopNode::RegionNode::Node::_pad_to_16_bytes = 0
          CountedLoopNode::LoopNode::RegionNode::Node::_debug_idx = 720896
          CountedLoopNode::LoopNode::RegionNode::Node::NotAMachineReg = 4294901760U
          CountedLoopNode::LoopNode::_flags = 0
          CountedLoopNode::_main_idx = 20010036U

      This object may or may not be the cause of the problem, but it's address is printed all over the heap...


      Extracting the class that causes a problem, and it's dependencies, these classes also show
      a problem with java_g: we don't get as far as massively overwriting the heap, we hit an assertion

      java_g -server -Xbatch -Xbootclasspath/p:ibm.jar -XX:+CompileTheWorld

      ...where ibm.jar contains the required ibm classes.

      (5.9)$ java_g -server -Xbatch -Xbootclasspath/p:ibm.jar -XX:+CompileTheWorld

      VM option '+CompileTheWorld'
      CompileTheWorld : Compiling all classes in /opt/calls/64018573.citibank/Test/ibm.jar

      CompileTheWorld (1) : com/ibm/sslite/g
      Preloading failed for (1) com/ibm/sslite/g
      # HotSpot Virtual Machine Error, assertion failure

      Dumping core....

      The assertion matches with:

      4724509 [1.3.1_04] Exception in "CompileThread0" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: alloc 512MB

      ...which became non-reproducible.

      The testcase here is reproducible with 1.3.1_10 (the customer's version), FCS ad also the latest 1.3.1_11.
