CPU at 99% with ExampleLiveDataServer before first job


I’m running the example OG deployment, v2.1, in a distributed setup with remote PostgreSQL and ActiveMQ. Each of the OG servers seems to run at 99% CPU until it gets a calc job.

jstack shows that it is running ExampleLiveDataServer.SimulatedMarketDataJob.runOneCycle which appears to be chewing up one core. (Full stack trace below [1].)

Curiously as soon as I send a calc job to the node (click “Load” in the GUI with some calculation) this thread stops and CPU runs at a manageable ~10% per job and down to ~2% when the job is killed.

So it’s not a problem – the node settles down when he has too. But it’s odd…

This is caused by a fault in the simulated market data server code when it is running with no active subscriptions. This was fixed in the 2.2.0-M5 release.


I’ve had better experiences running against the 2.2 prerelease than 2.1. There have been a lot of fixes and enhancements in the 2.2 prerelease than with 2.1.

The only problem that I have is that there have been times when someone has changed the code of 2.2 and not backported it to the example server, so I work against a checkpoint, and update that every week or so.
