    > I would be curious about the soft reference implementation as in DetaIteration cases
I think it is a valid situation that the job needs less and less memory.
    Are there any operators that dynamically adjust how much memory they take based on the
amount of input data?

>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Distributed Runtime
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.0
>            Reporter: Gabor Gevay
>            Assignee: Gabor Horvath
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 1.0.0
> When taskmanager.memory.preallocate is false (the default), released memory segments
are not added to a pool, but the GC is expected to take care of them. This puts too much pressure
on the GC with iterative jobs, where the operators reallocate all memory at every superstep.

> Reproducing the issue:
> https://github.com/ggevay/flink/tree/MemoryManager-crazy-gc
> The class to start is malom.Solver. If you increase the memory given to the JVM from
1 to 50 GB, performance gradually degrades by more than 10 times. (It will generate some lookuptables
to /tmp on first run for a few minutes.) (I think the slowdown might also depend somewhat
on taskmanager.memory.fraction, because more unused non-managed memory results in rarer GCs.)
