Performance issues in support-core plugin when task logs contains big text files

    • Released As:


      In case under $JENKINS_HOME/logs/tasks/ we have big files - I can easily reproduce this with 5 text files with around 50MB each of them - the support-core plugin takes a lot of minutes to generate the bundle.

      To reproduce the issue:

      1. We can have Anonymize support bundle contents disabled. To have this enabled, the performance issue is even worse, but we are concentrating the efforts when the anonymization is disabled.
      2. Insert 5 text files with around 50Mb each of them under $JENKINS_HOME/logs/tasks/. The files must have this pattern

      -rw-r--r--   1 user staff 220688805 Dec  3 10:46 Workspace clean-up.log
      -rw-r--r--   1 user staff 220688241 Dec  3 10:46 Workspace clean-up.log.1
      -rw-r--r--   1 user staff 220980327 Dec  3 10:46 Workspace clean-up.log.2
      -rw-r--r--   1 user staff 441376347 Dec  3 10:46 Workspace clean-up.log.3
      -rw-r--r--   1 user staff 441375743 Dec  3 10:46 Workspace clean-up.log.4
      -rw-r--r--   1 user staff 220687588 Dec  3 10:46 Workspace clean-up.log.5

      3. Generate a support bundle by ONLY enabling Master Task Log Recorders to easily reproduce the issue and

      The key seems to be that we are using FilterOutputStream.write when we should be using a BufferedOutputStream.write to improve the writing process.

      In my case I have 1.7 Gb of data under $JENKINS_HOME/logs/tasks/ (6 files of 211 Mb each of them + rest of files are very small) and the generation takes 2 full CPUs of Mac Book Pro - so it also has high CPU consumption during this time.

      We will see a stacktrace like the one below in the thread dumps when this issue happens.
