Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-208) OOM intermittently during compaction
Date Thu, 04 Jun 2009 23:37:07 GMT


Jun Rao commented on CASSANDRA-208:

Some comments:
1. In SSTable.loadIndexFile, indexEntries could be empty if there are fewer than indexInterval
keys. I don't see code dealing with empty indexEntries. A simple solution is to add the last
index key to indexEntries when indexEntries is empty. Similarly, you have to fix the same
case when an SSTable is first created. You have to remember the last index key being appended.

2. In, need to deal with the case that getPosition() returns -1. 

3. In SSTable.getColumnGroupReader, change getNearestPostion() to getPostion(). Similar to
2, need to deal with returned position being -1.

Also, we need to remember opening another issue to get rid of partitioner from KeyPosition.

> jvm crashes intermittently during compaction. Our test data set is not that big, less
than 10 GB.
> When jvm is about to crash, we see that it consumes a lot of memory (exceeding the max
heap size).
> The excessive memory usage during compaction is caused by the maintenance of blockIndexes_
in SSTable. this blockIndexes_ was only introduced to the apache version.
