      JVM crash, in hs_err_pidXX.log can be found:

      # JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (8.0_45-b14) (build 1.8.0_45-b14)
      # Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (25.45-b02 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)

      siginfo: si_signo: 11 (SIGSEGV), si_code: 1 (SEGV_MAPERR), si_addr: 0x0000000000000013



      Outside of JIRA, we've observed Confluence running Java 8u40 and 8u66 being affected.


      For Jira 6.4 - downgrade to Java7

      Given this is currently appearing to be a Java bug we're a bit limited in how we can help further.

      Update 2016-02-09 from Oracle see [JDK-8134389

      Status: IN PROGRESS
      Understanding: Cause Known
      Missing corner case handling of type 'instance_klass' in method LoadIndexed::declared_type. Similar corner case is taken care in another method “LoadIndexed::exact_type”.

      Update 2016-02-12

      • We see that in most cases there is -javaagent configured, but not sure if that 100% is related.
      • Feedback from client:

        We upgraded to the New Relic 3.25.0 agent. Our Confluence is still on 5.8.4, and our Java is still 8u60. We got through the 24-hour danger zone without any nodes crashing with a SIGSEGV, so very promising!

      Update 2017-05-29 from Oracle see [JDK-8134389

      Fix Version/s: 9
      Backport to Java 8u152, see https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8168123
