Findbugs XSLT style Error java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException

Tried running out-of-the-box Findbugs 1.3 with Ant 1.6 and Ant 1.7, on JDK 1.4 and JDK 1.5
It throws an error for the task findbugs.report which is a simple XSLT transform using a stylesheet. Peculiarly this fails only on Windows but works fine on Unix.
build.xml contains:


<style
basedir="${build.report.temp}"
destdir="${build.report}/findbugs"
includes="findbugs-post.xml"
style="${script.tools}/findbugs/tools/xsl/report.xsl">
<param
name="messages.xml"
expression="${script.tools}/findbugs/tools/xsl/messages.xml"/>
<param
name="output.dir"
expression="${build.report}/findbugs"/>
</style>



The error is


[style] Processing D:\Construction\reports\ebilling\tmp\findbugs-post.xml to D:\Construction\reports\ebilling\findbugs\findbugs-post.html
[style] Loading stylesheet D:\Construction\buildtools\bin\findbugs\tools\xsl\report.xsl
[style] : Error! java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException
[style] Failed to process D:\Construction\reports\ebilling\tmp\findbugs-post.xml
BUILD FAILED


D:\Construction\buildtools\dbscripts\findbugs.xml:67: javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: com.sun.org.apache.xalan.internal.xsltc.TransletException: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException



The problem is the <param> passed in with an absolute path fails for some reason - but it works when the path is relative to the stylesheet referenced in the style attribute. In this case the stylesheet is at style="${script.tools}/findbugs/tools/xsl/report.xsl"
So we changed:



<param expression="${script.tools}/findbugs/tools/xsl/messages.xml" name="messages.xml">


to a path relative to the report.xsl

<param expression="./messages.xml" name="messages.xml">
and that worked.

App Server High CPU or Low Threads - Support Team Actions











Occasionally Weblogic/JEE app servers run into High CPU (>70% or as per your app-defined thresholds) , then below is a list of actions and investigations that the support teams need to do.


  1. Check prstat –L –p Capture into a file if required.

  2. Output kill -3 into a file i.e. take thread dump. On Weblogic 10,you can do this from the Admin console as well

  3. Output pstack into a file

  4. Repeat this 4 times at 5 second intervals. At the end, you will have 5 sets of prstat, TD and pstack files.

  5. Run the TDs through Samurai or TDA to identify deadlocks. These tools show a graphical view of what each thread is doing at each point of time (when the thread dump was taken).
    The image below from Samurai shows RED blocks which are Stuck, and Green with < in them. Both of these need to be analyzed by clicking on the link in blue and seeing what line the thread is at. The Green ones with < might not be stuck, but they were at the same line as in previous thread dump and that indicates a potential problem.




  6. Then analyze the prstat and pstack for any particular thread issues.

  7. On the prstat, look for the LWP number on the right hand corner for high cpu and any long time in action.

  8. Convert the lwp number to hexa decimal value as follows:
    echo nawk '{printf("%d=0x%x\n",$1,$1)}'

  9. In the thread dump, search for "nid=" these threads could be the issue for the application.

  10. In the pstack outputs, check for the LWP numbers and confirm that the threads show the java trace.

Below is an example - Note this is indicative and not a proper instance of a slow-performing server.

1. prstat -a shows the java process consuming 42.6% and it has 180 LWP (Light-weight processes) running.

2. prstat -Lp 20677 gives the breakdown of these 180 LWPs
The top 2 can be seen to be consuming 10% CPU each and are running for longer than 15 minutes.

3. Run the cmd to convert the LWP decimal to Hex
echo 120 nawk '{printf("%d=0x%x\n",$1,$1)}' 120=0x78
echo 123 nawk '{printf("%d=0x%x\n",$1,$1)}' 123=0x7b
Now we need to investigate what these 2 threads are doing.

4. Check the Thread dump for the nid=0x78. It shows

"ExecuteThread: '83' for queue: 'wlr3Queue'" daemon prio=5 tid=0x00a886f0 nid=0x78 waiting for monitor entry [c3afe000..c3affc28]

at org.apache.log4j.Category.forcedLog(Category.java:391)

at org.apache.log4j.Category.debug(Category.java:260)

...



5. Running the above TD through Samurai also shows that Execute Thread 83, has been stuck for a while. It also shows that the same object <0xdc8e9080> is being locked by another Thread which happens to be the nid=0x7b

"ExecuteThread: '86' for queue: 'wlr3Queue'" daemon prio=5 tid=0x00a85730 nid=0x7b runnable [c3efd000..c3effc28]

6. Thus there is an issue around the log4j writing into log files, which needs further investigation.

In this case, one issue identified was that the log4j was in DEBUG mode which should not be the case in a Production platform. Thus there was unnecessary logging taking place.



7. Finally, a look at the pstack outputs for the two LWP 120 and 123 confirms what the LWPs were doing.

Another thing to check is for any other processes that are running at the same time on the server.

We faced a situation in the past, when backup processes ran at a fixed time on a particular directory, and caused CPU spikes. This was due to there being a huge number of old files in that directory.


We ran a du on the /data filesystem and as soon as it hits /data/software/xyz/log it stops dead and the CPU goes up to 0% free. This filesystem is used for deployments as the name implies. The reason was when the backup hits this directory, it will attempt to do an ls or something similar, right? As it encounters the 188994 logs that were there, it completely clogs up the CPU trying to process them. This is what is causing the CPU spikes. Whenever anyone or anything accesses this filesystem, everything stops.
