Subject Re: GC on taskmanagers
Date Wed, 01 Apr 2015 09:21:50 GMT
Hi Emmanuel,

If a job fails due to an Exception being thrown, the job is canceled. The
task manager remains intact and further jobs can be submitted.

An OutOfMemoryError, as the name implies, is not an Exception but an Error.
In general, this error is thrown when you make excessive use of Object
creation or when the task manager's memory size is simply too low. Due to
the nature of an out-of-memory situation, it can be thrown at an arbitrary
location in the code. Your job might be the cause of the OutOfMemoryError
but it can be thrown in Flink's internals (e.g. when a new Object is
allocated). It's pretty much impossible to catch this error everywhere as
it would require all code blocks to catch this error. And even if we
successfully caught a OutOfMemoryError, it is quite unclear how to recover
in such situation. Unfortunately, that usually means that the task manager
needs to restarted.

Are you using the Streaming API of Flink? Currently, we don't use the
managed memory there which makes OutOfMemoryErrors more likely to occur. Do
you have a code excerpt you might want to share with us? We could try to
find the cause of the error there. Otherwise, you could try to increase the
task manager's memory if you have more available on your machines.


Best regards,
Max
