      Description

      The latest version of Jenkins core uses Jetty 9.4, this version seems changes the way to manage the session cache and now it is infinite by default, this makes that the session cache is not cleaned with the time and cause a memory leak.

      This script gets the EvictionPolicy value and returns -1

      import net.bull.javamelody.* 
      def sessionMapField = SessionListener.class.getDeclaredField('SESSION_MAP_BY_ID') 
      sessionMapField.setAccessible(true) 
      def sessions = sessionMapField.get(null) 
      for (def sessionKV : sessions) { 
      def session = sessionKV.value 
        println session.getSessionHandler().getSessionCache().getEvictionPolicy() 
      }
      

      Jetty was upgraded from 9.2 to 9.4 in Jenkins 2.61, The old Jetty uses a different caching mechanism, which seems to have a non-infinite default eviction policy

      The workaround is to place this script at JENKINS_HOME/init.groovy.d to set the eviction policy to 30 min.

      import net.bull.javamelody.* 
      def sessionMapField = SessionListener.class.getDeclaredField('SESSION_MAP_BY_ID') 
      sessionMapField.setAccessible(true) 
      def sessions = sessionMapField.get(null) 
      for (def sessionKV : sessions) { 
      def session = sessionKV.value 
         session.getSessionHandler().getSessionCache().setEvictionPolicy(1800) 
      }
      

      These are other utility scripts to check the leak.

      This script list the sessions

      import net.bull.javamelody.* 
      println SessionListener.getSessionCount() + " sessions:" 
      def sessioninfos = SessionListener.getAllSessionsInformations() 
      for (sessioninfo in sessioninfos) { 
        println sessioninfo 
      }
      

      This script returns the number of sessions in cache

      import net.bull.javamelody.*
      
      def sessionMapField = SessionListener.class.getDeclaredField('SESSION_MAP_BY_ID')
      sessionMapField.setAccessible(true)
      def sessions = sessionMapField.get(null)
      for (def sessionKV: sessions) {
        def session = sessionKV.value
        def sessionCache = session.getSessionHandler().getSessionCache()
        def sessionsField = sessionCache.class.getDeclaredField('_sessions')
        sessionsField.setAccessible(true)
        println sessionsField.get(sessionCache).size()
      }
      

      This script force to clear the session cache

      import net.bull.javamelody.*
        
      def sessionMapField = SessionListener.class.getDeclaredField('SESSION_MAP_BY_ID')
      sessionMapField.setAccessible(true)
      def sessions = sessionMapField.get(null)
      for (def sessionKV: sessions) {
        def session = sessionKV.value
        def sessionCache = session.getSessionHandler().getSessionCache()
        def sessionsField = sessionCache.class.getDeclaredField('_sessions')
        sessionsField.setAccessible(true)
        def sessionKeys = sessionsField.get(sessionCache).keys()
        for (def sessionKey: sessionKeys) {
          sessionCache.delete(sessionKey)
        }
      }
