Java SE 8 on Linux Crashes with SIGBUS at StubRoutines::jint_disjoint_arraycopy (Doc ID 2440465.1)

Last updated on APRIL 14, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version and later
Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 8 to 9
Linux x86-64
Linux x86
A SIGBUS occurring at StubRoutines::j<'type'>_disjoint_arraycopy (i.e. jint_disjoint_arraycopy, jlong_disjoint_arraycopy, jbyte_disjoint_arraycopy, etc.) is almost always due to an application problem, e.g. referencing a mapped file after it has been unmapped, such as a ByteBuffer. However, there are a couple of Java SE bugs that can also incite this type of crash, and this document discusses one particular instance of this crash that is caused by a JavaSE bug on Linux only platforms.


Oracle Java SE versions 8 or 9 on Linux platforms crash with a SIGBUS error at  StubRoutines::jint_disjoint_arraycopy. This crash can occur with Oracle Fusion Middleware applications that run on Linux platforms and use affected releases of Java SE 8, including WebLogic Server (WLS) 12c, which is certified with Java SE 8.  The issue can also occur in the Oracle Cloud environment under the same circumstances.

The crash can generate a core file and a HotSpot Fatal Error Log (hs_err_pid<pid>.log) with the following error:

Both the core file and hs_err_pid<pid>.log can be truncated due to the issue.  See <Document 1317839.1> "Is My Application Core File Truncated" for details.


The issue can occur with all Linux platform Java SE 9 versions and all Java SE 8 versions below  8 Update 191, except the Bundled Patch Releases (BPRs) noted in the Solution Note below.
