Subject Re: Spargel: Memory runs out at setNewVertexValue()
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2014 08:45:54 GMT

Thanks for the observation. Here is what I can see:

The distribution of hash values is very skewed. One partition has one
buffer as size, the other one 155. Are your objects very different in size,
or is the hash function flawed? More even distribution may help here a lot.

The solution set of the delta iterations is the archillis heel of the
system right now. We are actively working to make memory more adaptive and
give it more if needed. Expect a big fix in a few weeks.

In the mean time, let me try and do a patch for an unofficial non-managed
memory solution set. That should be able to grow into the heap and grab
more memory if needed.
