HEAP_ALLOCED() is not thread-safe
Hi, I have a program that seems to run into occasional garbage collection-related core dumps. The problem typically only occurs after the program has been running for a while and is consuming a large amount of memory (5 - 16GB). The large memory consumption is expected because the program analyzes very large traces from verilog simulation and needs to maintain !IntMaps with hundreds of thousands of entries.
Is this a bug that I should report?I am afraid that my employer will not allow me to share my source code. I do have a stack trace, below. This was obtained using ghc 6.10.1, RTS -N2 on an x86-64 RHEL 4 machine.
Is there something I can do trace the problem or avoid it?
Thanks. PS: This is my first Haskell program and one of the most complicated I ever wrote, in any language. Using Haskell has been (mostly :-)) a joy.
