Subject Re: Can someone explain memory usage in a flink worker?
Date Thu, 27 Jul 2017 10:21:27 GMT
I also faced annoying problems with Flink memory and TMs killed by the OS
because of OOM.
To limit somehow the memory consumption of TM *on a single job* I do the

Add to flink.yaml

   - env.java.opts: -Dio.netty.recycler.maxCapacity.default=1

Edit taskmanager.sh

   - and change TM_MAX_OFFHEAP_SIZE from 8388607T to 5g

PROBABLY the unexpected memory consumption is causeb by Netty and this
allow a single job to terminate without being killed by the OS.
However, the TM memory continuosly grows one job after the other..it seems
that Flink doesn't free all the memory somehow (but I don't know where).

I hope this helps,
