performance analysis help

0 Kudos

Hi All,

I used the information in web blog : /people/markus.kohler/blog/2006/09/14/analyzing-performance-problems-on-a-production-system to perform a thread dump while our system was very busy. During this time, I coud see that the top CPU process was a server process 'jlaunch'. I then took a thread dump of this process using jcmon and then ran the grep/sort/uniq command against the thread dump. The result is below. Can anyone assist in what can be the cause of our high CPU utilization?

Hi Again, further information:

I took several thread dumps over a period of 15 seconds, then used the 'Samurai' as mentioned in https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/weblogs?blog=/pub/wlg/4425. [original link is broken] [original link is broken] It is interesting to see that there are 4 threads that seem to be accessing the LDAP the whole time (ie):

Do you agree that this looks like an LDAP lookup issue? I will analyse this further and let you know if I have any further information.

It seems to me that the only interesting methods that show up in your thread dumps are related to jndi, which could be related to LDAP.

I'm a bit surprised that this would cause high cpu load because usually, accessing LDAP is not CPU intensive.

I would recommend to take more thread dumps using the sapntkill command as described in my blog (the one you already referenced).

I would also check the garbage collector activity. Maybe full GC's are causing the high cpu consumption.

Markus

Hi Markus,

Thanks for your response. I'm not sure if the 'com.sun.jndi.ldap.Connection.run' is the reason for our CPU usage being high, but what I can say is that whenever I see the CPU high and run a series of thread dumps, I always see a set of threads (typically 5 threads) that were running for the whole period and the thread output for these looks like :

""Thread-5497" daemon prio=5 tid=0x0000000102da2160 nid=0x1651 runnable      at java.net.SocketInputStream.socketRead0(Native Method)      at java.net.SocketInputStream.read(SocketInputStream.java:129)      at java.io.BufferedInputStream.fill(BufferedInputStream.java:183)      at java.io.BufferedInputStream.read1(BufferedInputStream.java:222)      at java.io.BufferedInputStream.read(BufferedInputStream.java:277)      - locked <

I guess my current questions are:

- I can see which threads are "running" at any period of time using thread dumps, but how can I tell which threads are the problematic and using the majority of CPU?

- Is it normal to often (if not always) see threads processing the "com.sun.jndi.ldap.Connection.run" ? If not, what are the things that I can check to rectify this?

Thanks for your time,

Regards

Anthony

Hi Again,

I took a series of thread dumps while the system was idle (noone using the system and CPU ~100% idle) and could still see the running threads processing "com.sun.jndi.ldap.Connection.run". In fact, more threads were shown to be processing this than I've seen previously.

I now think that this is not the issue. The CPU load seems to be caused by one of the other threads.

I'll let you know what else I find.

Regards

Anthony

I'm now going to use note 743206 to attempt to determine the worst performing threads.

That's a good idea, and you can also use it together with the information from the thread dumps.

By the way, on Windows the same can be done using the pslist utility (

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/PsList.mspx)

I think I should write a blog entry about this ...

Yes. your default.trace log files are getting archived, after some time.

Please check your log settings. Maybe you have a lot of errors, or some components on the log level debug.

Hi Anthony,

We are experiencing same issue in Dev box ( which has 4 CPUs and 12 GB physical RAM). Did you find any solution for your problem? I would appreciate if you could let us know your resolution if you have one

Thanks

Venkat

Hi Venkat,

I assume that you mean you are getting the same 'java.util.zip.Deflater.deflateBytes' showing up in your thread dumps. Check your defaultTrace.trc file(s) (/usr/sap/<SID>/<instance>/cluster/server<n>/log). Try to stop the Portal from logging so frequently, by :

1- Rectify the issue causing the errors

2- Reduce your logging level (use Visual Admin -> Cluster -> Server<n> -> Services -> Log configuration).

In our case, I found the cause of the error and stopped it.

Regards

Anthony
