Java Virtual Machine (JVM) - HotSpot Virtual Machine crash

Hello all,

We have an HP-UX meprod1 B.11.23 U 9000/800 64 bit O.S. with 1.5.0.02 Java version.

Today our production application crushed and the JVM produced a log saying the following:

#
# An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine:
#
# SIGSEGV (11) at pc=c0184770, pid=7141, tid=144
#
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (1.5.0.02 jinteg:10.14.05-17:07 PA2.0 (aCC_AP) mixed mode)
# Problematic frame:
# C [libc.2+0x84770]

Some extra system info:

meprod1 97: uname -r
B.11.23

meprod1 109: /opt/mediation/java/jre1.5.0_02/bin/java -version
java version "1.5.0.02"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0.02-_14_oct_2005_17_51)

How would you suggest to handle this? Is it a JVM bug or could it be an O.S. problem?

thank you in advance,

Shalom Alex,

Java is quite out of date.

Get and install a supported, current release.

Re: Java Virtual Machine (JVM) - HotSpot Virtual Machine crash

Thank you Steven for the quick reply.
I would like if possible to verify that it is a known bug that is fixed in a newer version.

Can you advice me a page with changelogs between the java version we have currently installed and the latest one?

Although i suspect our problem has to do with a missing system patch as it is mentioned in here http://docs.hp.com/en/HPUXJAVAPATCHES/index.html

Thank you

Re: Java Virtual Machine (JVM) - HotSpot Virtual Machine crash

It would be nearly impossible to say for sure that it was the O.S. or JVM, but the fact that your O.S. is relatively current while your JVM is some 4 years old would lead most to the conclusion that Java was the problem. The fact that it was a SIGSEGV fault would also lead me to suspect Java rather than the O.S.
