Connection terminated but client didn't realise

David Wheeler-2

Hello wise postgresians,

 

We have a query that our system runs nightly to refresh materialised views. This takes some time to execute (~25 minutes) and then it will usually return the results to the application and everything is golden. However occasionally we see something like the below, where the query finishes, but the connection gets unexpectedly closed from Postgres’ perspective. From the application’s perspective the connection is still alive, and it sits there forever waiting for the result.

From the application side, this is the thread that executes the query

Possibly relevant is that there’s another thread attempting to close this connection, and is waiting for lock on 0x0000000683a1fe70 (this is Glassfish’s connection leak reclaiming)

 

        at org.postgresql.core.QueryExecutorBase.getTransactionState(QueryExecutorBase.java:242)

        - waiting to lock <0x0000000683a1fe70> (a org.postgresql.core.v3.QueryExecutorImpl)

        at org.postgresql.ds.PGPooledConnection.close(PGPooledConnection.java:86)

        at com.sun.gjc.spi.ManagedConnectionImpl.destroy(ManagedConnectionImpl.java:433)

 

I haven’t confirmed this but my guess is that this second thread doesn’t kick in until much later in the events, well after 2019-11-11 22:59:04.845.

 

 

postgres version: PostgreSQL 9.5.19 on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by gcc (Ubuntu 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.10) 5.4.0 20160609, 64-bit

JDBC driver postgresql-42.1.4

 

 

Does anyone have an idea what might be causing the connection to close? Or perhaps why the JDBC thread hasn’t detected that the connection is closed?

 

TIA

Is the application remote from the database server?  My gut reaction
to this type of report is "something timed out the network connection",
but there would have to be a router or firewall or the like in between
to make that a tenable explanation.

If that is the issue, you should be able to fix it by making the
server's TCP keepalive settings more aggressive.

Yes the application server is separate from the database server, and the application is running within docker which I suspect adds some complexity too. I had suspicions about something in the middle closing the connection too, but your email has clarified my thinking a bit.

TCP Keepalive appears to be enabled on the application server and within docker, and the client holds the allegedly dead connection for much longer (24h) than the keepalive should take to kill it (<3h), so I think the next step is to try to identify the connection at the OS level with netstat to see what state it's in.

Thanks for your help.

David
