> As reported by a user on the Nutch list, if there are lots of threads all parsing HTML
documents, there's a lock contention issue caused by a JVM-wide lock used when resolving charset

> Apparently this is a known issue with Java, and a couple articles are

> http://halfbottle.blogspot.com/2009/07/charset-continued-i-wrote-about.html 
> There is also a note in java bug database about scaling issues with the
> class...
> Please also note that the current implementation of
> sun.nio.cs.FastCharsetProvider.charsetForName() uses a JVM-wide lock and is
> called very often (e.g. by new String(byte[] data,String encoding)). This
> JVM-wide lock means that Java applications do not scale beyond 4 CPU cores.
> I noted in the case of my stack at this particular point in time.  The
> BLOCKED calls to charsetForName were generated by:
> at org.apache.tika.parser.html.HtmlParser.getEncoding(HtmlParser.java:84) 378
> at org.apache.tika.parser.html.HtmlParser.getEncoding(HtmlParser.java:99) 61
> at org.apache.tika.parser.html.HtmlParser.getEncoding(HtmlParser.java:133) 19

> We now have a CharsetUtils class in Tika, and we could add a cache for validated names
in the isSupported() method.
