SEVERE errors when stopping stash


I run this evaluation version of stash on my PC, windows 7. I installed the latest java version 1.7.0_09 from Oracle during the STASH installation process, an I had already installed git version 1.7.11.msysgit.1 on this PC.

When I start stash ( with the help of start-stash /fg ), it starts quite slow... but at the end it starts with no visible problems. When catalina is running, I get connection to stash via localhost, can create projects, repositories, etc... so it seems that it works. However, when I stop stash ( CTRL-C then stop-stash ), it sends out a lot of SEVERE marked messages, indicating possible memory leaks. I attach two of the logs: one is made by Stash, the other is a handmade copy of the command window... could you tell me where the problem is ? Also, could you indicate whether I can find somewhere the APR based Apache Tomcat Native library which allows optimal performance in production environments was not found on the java.library.path:... mentioned in your INFO message, please.

Thanks and regards

Hi Tibor,

Do the severe error you see on the logs are like these:

SEVERE: A web application appears to have started a thread named [com.mchange.v2.async.ThreadPoolAsynchronousRunner$PoolThread-#0] but has failed to stop it. This is very likely to create a memory leak.

If so, it's in fact an issue with Tomcat and not with Stash itself, but it's harmless. You can see more details here, it's a Confluence documentation, but it's the same for all application using Tomcat.


Hi Tiago,

Yes, the log looks like as you quoted. Thank you for the answer.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
