Memory leak with Python-Couchbase 2.5.0

We have a service written in Python3, connecting to one or more Couchbase clusters.
During normal operations hundreds operations per second are being processed and each of them translates to one or more Couchbase operations.
The service is deployed on Ubuntu 16.04 amd64 instances, under uwsgi.

We ran the same application using:

  • libcouchbase 2.10.3-1
  • python3-couchbase 2.5.0

and with 2.3.3:

  • libcouchbase 2.8.4-1
  • python3-couchbase 2.3.3

With the old versions (2.3.3 and 2.8.4-1 for libcouchbase) the memory allocation is stable over 24h.
With the new versions (2.5.0 and 2.10.3-1 for libcouchbase) the memory grows steadily over 10-12 hours until the application needs to be restarted.

We used also tried python3-couchbase 2.5.5 and still, the memory leak is there.

Hi, is it possible for you to run Valgrind or another C profiler on the client for a few minutes? This will likely require you to build couchbase-python-client and libcouchbase in debug mode to get useful information: as follows:

  1. Build libcouchbase in debug mode:
    git clone https://github.com/couchbase/libcouchbase.git@2.10.3
    cd libcouchbase
    mkdir build
    cd build
    .../cmake/configure --enable-debug
    make && sudo make install
    cd ..
  2. Build the client
    git clone https://github.com/couchbase/couchbase-python-client.git@2.5.5
    cd couchbase-python-client
    export PYCBC_SAN_OPT_leak=TRUE or export PYCBC_SAN_OPT_address=TRUE or neither (these enable clang/gcc Leak and Address Sanitizer respectively)
    python setup.py build_ext --debug install (preferably in a clean virtualenv or similar)

Then run a profiler such as valgrind or gprof on the Python instance that uses Couchbase Python Client. Or run standalone if you used the leak/address sanitizer options, and provide the output.

Thanks,

Ellis

Hi Ellis,
Thanks for the advice.
Running the application using valgrind is a bit harder because we use the following setup:
uwsgi master --> python3 workers

We managed to run our application under valgind (excluding uwsgi) and the most promising leaks are.
See bellow.

Hi Ellis,

OK, this is very useful, thanks. I’ll take a look ASAP.

This is coming from the tracing section of the code. If you are not using it, for the meantime you can disable tracing by passing “enable_tracing=off” in the connection string. I will work on a fix ASAP.

Thanks,

Ellis

Hi Elllis,

So is it a confirmed leak, or the possible leaks reported by valgrind are actually due to the “testing mode” we used ?
Thank you
