Are you using Java 7?

Hi Pavan,

For all the intermediate processing there would be a buffer (intermediate memory space) that
stores data, messages etc.and then the complete process further.

Pls correct me if I am wrong.

I have set Xms and Xmx values properly.

The problem is that the task runs for small datasets but as the input data size is increased,
it fails.

The error that I am getting in sysout logs is-

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#  SIGBUS (0x7) at pc=0x00002aaaab404144, pid=10397, tid=1144650048

# JRE version: 6.0_25-b06
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (20.0-b11 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)
# Problematic frame:

# An error report file with more information is saved as:

# /hadoopTaskTrackerLogsLocation/process_id/s_err_pid10397.log

Please suggest what should be done? Am I missing anything?

Subject: Giraph Buffer Size


Hi All,

I am trying to run a job in Giraph-1.0.0 on Hadoop-1.0.0 cluster with 3 nodes.

Each node has 32gb RAM.

In superstep-8 of my algorithm approximately 2M messages are being sent where size of each
message is more than 20 kb. But the process sticks here and task gets failed.

In the sysout logs, it shows Fatal Error.

Is this error because Buffer is getting full?
How can I increase the buffer size for giraph application?

Please suggest.
