JQL Tricks plugin generates lots of index threads, consuming abnormal size of memory


We recently upgraded to Jira 6.1.5 and also to the latest JQL Tricks plugin (5.3). Our Jira server keeps hanging once a day. Examing threads dump, GC log finds that JQL Trick plugin generated lots of index threads, which is a major factor leading to our Jira problem.

Is there any suggestion on how to address this problem other than disabling/removing JQL Tricks plugin?

I wish I could do something with this as the plugin developer, instead of replacing issue functions with something else. This problem is generated by JIRA code and is outside the scope of the plugin module.

I have already reported this with Atlassian at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-36368and they have acknowledged it. But I haven't got any feedback on when it will be fixed. Maybe if more users share the same feeling on the ticket, they might fast track the issue.

I am sure the fix will help a few more plugins out there and a huge number of customers who have written custom JQL functions.

Please make sure you vote for the issue as well even if you do not add a comment.

Is there a version of Jira where you do not see or feel this issue? I have a potential customer that wants to downgrade, but I am not sure to what version of Jira to downgrade to? They are on Jira 6.1.7. They believe they can live without the Jira's improvements over not using your plugin.
