I started my program and everything works fine over time, STW started to rise in time, after about 2.3 days later. My pauseNs:

If I restart the program,everything is returned to the normal.
but when the problem has happened, found the number of inuse_objects at the time of the problem is the same as when it was started, and the same is true for inuse_space.
Using top command, the memory occupied by the program has not increased

Go 1.9 is quite old and is no longer supported. The most recent release is 1.13.5. There have been many improvements to the garbage collector since 1.9. Is it possible for you to try a newer release?

iI wonder if it's a problem with our code itself

The most likely cause of this problem is an unpreemptible loop: a loop that runs, perhaps checking some package variable, without making any function calls. That will break the Go scheduler; see #10958 (this problem is fixed in the upcoming 1.14 release). The fix is to add calls to runtime.Gosched in the loop.

I turned off the request to send,the GC PauseNs return to normal. But I only need to send 1 request, the system GC PauseNs larger than hundreds of mililseconds. How can I know what GC is doing at this time?
Why do I have the highest percentage of gentraceback?thx and very much.

Any better suggestions? we use the cpu profile and dichotomy also can not find the tight or busy loop.. so sad.

Any better suggestions?

Have you tried go 1.13?

And if it is a non-preemptible loop, try go 1.14. A beta should be coming very soon.

the reason for this is the grpc goroutine lead to the gentraceback with time growth

Are you saying that grpc is leaking goroutines?

Yes, the error disappeared when we replaced grpc with http. I'm not sure if it's because our usage is wrong.

It sounds like a bug with grpc then. Please file an issue on their issue tracker.

pprof's goroutine profiling may be useful for tracking down where the leaked goroutines are being created. See e.g.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/38401778/how-to-profile-number-of-goroutines#38414527

I'm going to close this issue, but if the issue does turn out to originate in grpc, please do file an issue with them. Thanks!
