Introduce cache.threads option to enable a custom cache executor Since the introduction of Caffeine as alternative to Guava in Change 244612, the execution of the cache event listeners moved to a background thread, run by the ForkJoinPool's common pool . The subtle difference has caused issues to the plugins that are registering listeners, like the high-availability and multi-site: the consequences have been quite serious because of the inability to understand if the eviction was caused by a forwarded cache eviction event or by an execution of Gerrit API or other internals that caused the removal of the entry. The use of the JVM common pool has several disadvantages and, under certain conditions , it may even lead to deadlocks or unexpected blockages. By introducing the cache.threads option, decouple the cache background threads execution and allow to configure an explicit separate thread pool which can be tuned and decoupled from the rest of the JVM common threads. Also, allow to restore the plugins' cache listeners legacy behaviour without losing the ability to leverage the performance of Caffeine cache vs. the traditional Guava. By default, this change is a NO-OP because it preserves the current behaviour of background execution tasks of the Caffeine cache. Introduce DefaultMemoryCacheFactoryTest class from stable-3.4 for avoiding further conflicts when merging upstream.

Gerrit is a code review and project management tool for Git based projects.
Gerrit makes reviews easier by showing changes in a side-by-side display, and allowing inline comments to be added by any reviewer.
Gerrit simplifies Git based project maintainership by permitting any authorized user to submit changes to the master Git repository, rather than requiring all approved changes to be merged in by hand by the project maintainer.
For information about how to install and use Gerrit, refer to the documentation.
Please report bugs on the issue tracker.
Gerrit is the work of hundreds of contributors. We appreciate your help!
Please read the contribution guidelines.
Note that we do not accept Pull Requests via the Github mirror.
The Developer Mailing list is repo-discuss on Google Groups.
