      Description

      As the customer explains it, they introduced new code to their application about a week ago (so roughly 6 July 2009). The new code causes a high number of CMS collections in the Eden space (about every 2 seconds) for over half an hour upon startup.

      After an hour of functionality, the application crashes with a core file and hs_err log. The appserver in which this runs does not display any errors before the crash.

      Review of the hs_err logs suggested to CFE's that bug 6793611 was at fault. Lawrence Chow, engaged for the latest crash, disagrees. While the problem is in CMS, he feels that 6793611 is not the culprit. Analysis of the core file is required to discover root cause.

      Core file is at /net/cores.central/cores/71275408/12July/core.6220. Libraries are in /net/cores.central/cores/71275408/12July/libs. All associated data collected from the latest crash (jstack, jmap, gclogs) are in /net/cores.central/cores/71275408/12July
      Customer is using 64-bit Java 6 update 13 on Red hat Linux 5.2. After coding changes made last week that increased the amount of GC in Eden, application starts crashing after about an hour of life.
