Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1631) OutOfMemoryException in ZipContainerDetector
Date Wed, 19 Apr 2017 16:37:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1631?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15975033#comment-15975033

Tim Allison commented on TIKA-1631:

bq. Out of curiosity, an user reported an OOME that stopped our application today, but I am
still waiting feedback from them to diagnose  Maybe that is not related to Tika

Unfortunately, it wouldn't surprise me if that is Tika related.  If at all possible, consider
running Tika outside of the jvm/vm/m that you're running your indexer/post processing on.
 As always, do open an issue once you diagnose it, but, in my experience, we _cannot_ guarantee
that bad things will not happen.

> When I try to detect ZIP container I rarely get this exception. It is caused by the fact
that the file looks like ZIP container (magics), but in fact its random noise. So Apache decompress
tries to find the size of tables (expects correct stream), loads coincidentally huge number
(as on the given place there can be anything in the stream) and tries to allocate array of
several GB in size (hence the exception).
> This bug negatively influences stability of systems running Tika, as the decompressor
can accidentally allocate as much memory as is available and other parts of the system then
might not be able to allocate their objects.
> A solution might be to add additional parameter to Tika config that would limit size
of these arrays. If the size would be bigger, it would throw exception. This change should
not be hard, as method InternalLZWInputStream.initializeTables() is protected.
