CBL freezes app - Full ANR trace provided

CBL freezes app - Full Application-Not-Responding trace provided

Linking back to two issues:


Here is the part of the trace with CBL which seems to lock something and thus the app freezes. This is after the user pressed a button and app writes to CBL

I attached the full trace as of size limit - txt is not permitted, uploading as zip file anr-trace.zip (20.8 KB)

What else can I do to get this issue acknowledged?

Here is another ANR trace. Different view in the app. User presses a button, app writes to storage -> ANR

Another one with different trace, but again with locks and mutexes

Hi @benjamin_glatzeder,

anr-trace.zip is not downloadable. Can you repost it? And also I’d like to check entire thread-dump to find which thread blocks others.

In addition, can you share following?

  • CBL version
  • Android OS version

Thanks!

CBL 1.3.0
Andoid 4.4, 5.1, 6.0
Source of traces and other info is Google Play Developer Console

I created a private Github gist and will send you the link as direct message if this is OK

Hi Benjamin, it’s better for everyone if you file bug reports in our issue tracker rather than just as forum posts. The appropriate Github repo is https://github.com/couchbase/couchbase-lite-java-core. Thanks.

@jens that’s alright, will do that!

@jens @hideki I created a new issue here

Generic recommendation:

It seems pull replication is busy because of document size is large or large number of documents. And it keeps holding SQLite write connection. The write connection is only one. Therefore, main thread is blocked by SQLite write operation.

I recommend to use Database.runAsync(…) or Android’s AsyncTask to store document in Couchbase lite instead of storing document from main thread.

I created a sample app which mimics my app’s data modell. Data is only saved locally. In extreme scenario updating takes less than 1 second. This is far away from an ANR although it is an extreme scenario. Please see my detailed comment on the Github issue

Might this be related: _changes feed latency is very high

Issue is fixed by implementing client-side conflict solving and pruning of old revisions via SG
