Subject Re: Memory Leak - Flink / RocksDB ?
Date Tue, 25 Jul 2017 14:27:23 GMT
Hi Shashwat,

Are you specifying the RocksDBStateBackend from the flink-conf.yaml or from

If you are specifying it from the code, you can try using
Also, you can try setting incremental checkpointing ( this feature is in
Flink 1.3.0)

If the above does not solve your issue, you can control the memory usage of
RocksDB by tuning the following values and check your performance :

*DBOptions: *
     (along with the FLASH_SSD_OPTIONS add the following)

  max_buffer_size : 512 MB
  block_cache_size : 128 MB
  max_write_buffer_number : 5
  minimum_buffer_number_to_merge : 2
  cacheIndexAndFilterBlocks : true
  optimizeFilterForHits: true

I would recommend reading the following documents:

*Memory usage of RocksDB* :

*RocksDB Tuning Guide:*

Hope it helps.
