regular EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATIONs in jvm.dll

I am expierencing regular EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATIONs in jvm.dll at some random moments.

The VM crash logs start with the following text with some minor changes from crush to crush:

===
#
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#
#  EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x000000006dc87954, pid=11740, tid=11552
#
# JRE version: 6.0_18-b07

siginfo: ExceptionCode=0xc0000005, reading address 0x00000000000000d9

The address of the problematic frame changes slightely and the siginfo reading address changes but stays close to 0x0.
I have sent these crash logs to the supplied bug report address but it is pretty useless.

There were similar problems some years ago (http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/message/5004875#5004875, http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/message/5048349#5048349, http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-3444) that were related to the JNI calls.

Has anybody seen something similar with the 9.0 builds?

For the record, i am on Windows 7 x64 and using JDK 1.6.0_18 x64.

Haven't checked what the actual crash is caused by however on my W7 x64 workstation I am also having the latest EAP crashing relatively regularly... most disconcerting.

Hello Oleg,

Please try to add the following to idea.exe.vmoptions:
-XX:-ReduceInitialCardMarks

See http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/6u18.html for more information.

Dmitry, i am now trying to run Idea with -XX:-ReduceInitialCardMarks. Either it will help and i will not reply to this post anymore or i will return with new crash log. Hope for the former.

I was under the impression this was strictly a 32-bit issue. And heretofore, at least, only seen on Linux.

-XX:-ReduceInitialCardMarks certainly seems to have cured the problem I
was seeing on my 64-bit Linux box.  I've had no crashes at all in the
three weeks since I added it to my idea.vmoptions file.  They'd been
frustratingly common before that.

I meant to post a follow-up thanking you for suggesting it (it was you,
right?)...  So thank you :)

I may have been the first to suggest it here (in the IDEA forums), but I myself was put onto the problem and its solution by a person who frequents #scala and who keeps a close eye on HotSpot internals.

I just recently switched from Ubuntu Linux 09.10 64-bit to Windows 2008 R2 64-bit to run IntelliJ 9 since IntelliJ was crashing within 30-60 seconds on startup in Ubuntu.
Windows is working better, but it is crashing about once per hour with what looks like the same error mentioned in this thread.
I will will try the -XX:-ReduceInitialCardMarks and see if it fixes the problem.
Thanks -Alex

I read the bug (http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=6896647) and it has a linked bug (http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=2186975) for java 6 update 19 which says it was fixed in 6u19(b02). Since released 6u19 says build b04, it should be fixed.


But I checked java 6 update 19 release notes, and I don't see the bugfix mentioned there.

http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/6u19.html

I will try java 6 update 19 first to see if that fixes the problem, and if that doesn't work I'll use the workaround.

Thanks,
-Alex
