Subject [jira] Updated: (CASSANDRA-2301) OOM on repair with many inconsistent ranges
Date Wed, 09 Mar 2011 20:09:59 GMT


Jonathan Ellis updated CASSANDRA-2301:

    Attachment: 2301-v2.txt

I'm actually not sure how this could help -- dfile.close() already un-references the buffer,
so there's no need to set dfile itself to be null.  Also, the file pointer changes as we read
through the file, so changing bytescomplete to init-once is broken. (This is what nodetool
compactionstats uses.)

My guess is that the second time around you just got lucky and index build was able to keep
up w/ streaming enough to avoid OOMing.

But there is a bug here with the file/buffer handling -- we should lazy-init this once we're
ready to build the index, rather than when we enqueue the task.  Patch attached w/ this approach.

> Repair can OOM when lots of ranges are inconsistent, causing many sstables to be streamed.
> I replicated the error by making 1264 3MB sstables on one node, added a second node,
changed the replication factor to 2, and ran a repair.
> Looking at the heap dump of the original failure, there were 2.4GB of FutureTasks, each
taking up 8MB of space. I tracked down the BufferedRandomAccessFile and made sure that it
was cleared every time it was closed inside of src/java/org/apache/cassandra/io/sstable/
> Attached is the patch I used which stopped the error when I was trying to replicate it.
