While somewhat unrelated, I figure this is the best thread in which to note that there is a known memory leak within JAI when writing handling JPEG2000 images that a third party has fixed in March and documented it here:
http://www.jpedal.org/PDFblog/2011/03/java-jai-image-io-jpeg2000-memory- leak-fix/ http://www.jpedal.org/PDFblog/2011/04/jai-memory-leak-source-changes/ They have been unable to commit their change to java-net since the move to Oracle. -Josh From: Eric Douglas [mailto:edoug...@blockhouse.com] Sent: Wednesday, May 18, 2011 1:43 PM To: email@example.com Subject: RE: Fop Memory Use This test run isn't using SVG at all. The PDFRenderer is working, the PNGRenderer runs out of memory, so it is using images but as output. I already broke up the input to multiple FOs with multiple calls to the transform to generate a large document by combining small documents using the initial-page-number. As the program runs it just keeps increasing memory use. I tried running a profile with Java's VisualVM though I'm not sure what exactly I'm looking at or what to do with it. The number one item showing memory hog in the profiler, as of my last snapshot was: class int, live bytes 23,273,952 B, live objects 382, generations 10 After the program crashed with the profiler running I had an additional file opened, Java2DRenderer.class, so I'm assuming it's doing something that breaks PNGRenderer. My class doesn't have any int references. After that first reference the sizes drop off sharply in the profiler. The next class reference is char, then org.apache.fop.area.inline.SpaceArea. ________________________________ From: Peter Hancock [mailto:peter.hanc...@gmail.com] Sent: Wednesday, May 18, 2011 12:05 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Fop Memory Use Hi Eric, Does your document contain many large SVG's? If so take a look at Bugzilla #46360. This issue was resolved in rev 997602 of FOP trunk.

Pages should be available for garbage collection once the page sequence has been rendered. Cheers, Adrian.

Maybe that might free the memory up? Thanks. -Mike On 18/05/11 13:20, Eric Douglas wrote: I am using Fop 1.0. I tried using Fop to transform a single document. When I got a little over 100 pages my FO file was over 5 MB. The transform crashed with a Java heap out of memory error. I managed to break the input down, as I'm using embedded code generating the input programmatically, and the PDF output is a lot smaller. So I'm currently transforming 10 pages at a time, setting the initial-page-number to the next sequence (1, 11, 21, etc). Then I save all the generated PDFs in memory and merge them using pdfbox. So far this is working great. I tried to do the same thing with the PNGRenderer, just calling a method to transform 10 pages at a time and save the output images in an array. The PNGRenderer is created locally in the method. It should be getting released when the method ends but the java process never releases any memory. I tested a 90 page report and the memory use was over 1 GB. I tested on another machine where the memory limit is apparently lower and it crashed on page 24. Everything about the method to render to PNG is the same as the method to render to PDF aside from the Renderer. Is there a problem with this renderer or something I could need to do different?
