Deadlock between Executor and AsynchronousExecution


    • Similar Issues:


      A deadlock has been observed sporadically during Pipeline-related tests:

        waiting for ownable synchronizer 0x00000006c25235e0, (a java.util.concurrent.locks.ReentrantReadWriteLock$NonfairSync),

      I think the bug is in core, not WorkflowRun. The timer thread is holding an AsynchronousExecution monitor and waiting for the corresponding Executor read lock. This is entirely happening in core code. The test thread is holding the executor write lock (from doStop) and waiting for the AsynchronousExecution monitor. doStop winds up calling back into AsynchronousExecution.interrupt, which in this case is calling getExecutor, as indeed the Javadoc recommends.

      (The test thread is also holding a lock on the WorkflowRun, and the timer thread a lock on WorkflowRun.completed, both of which are potentially concerning, but these do not seem involved here.)
