#15547 closed defect (fixed)

Serious autocomplete performance degradation

Description (last modified by Klumbumbus)


I deal with a huge dataset (about 30k bus stops nodes) almost daily.
This was never a problem before, but since recently, JOSM often hangs when I edit the bus stop tags.
Waiting for a few seconds (can be up to ~30) always resolves this.

It happens seems to happen when editing massively used keys. For instance, all stops have a
"ref" key, and when I click "edit" on a single stop's "ref", JOSM
stalls. A similar issue occurs when adding "description" to changeset
uploads. Description is also used by all stops. So it appears this is triggered whenever auto-complete is in use.


"I can reproduce this locally on JOSM 13106. According to jvisualvm cpu
profiling (on Oracle JDK), most time is spent in method"
-- mmd

It's a CPU starvation issue and not a memory overuse issue.
(Core at 100% for 10-30 seconds).

Test case

Run the Overpass query below to obtain a huge bus stop dataset, then try editing the ref or name of a stop.
12712 works flawlessly.
13053 hangs for 10-30 seconds.

fix #15547 - fix major performance drawback of AutoCompletionSet (regression from r12859)

comment:4 Changed 7 days ago by Don-vip

I think it's OK now but I have not tested it much against potential side effects. Can you please tell me if you find anything unusual in autocompletion tomorrow?

comment:5 Changed 6 days ago by mmd

I did a very quick check on r13121, performance issue seems to be solved.

comment:6 Changed 5 days ago by SafwatHalaby

Thank you for the quick response. I will test this when I have the time.

For the record, the issue was originally posted and discussed here:

There is also a separate discussion which was started up at around the same time, but it also talks about memory errors. I don't know whether or not the issues are related:

13124 didn't solve the issue.
