Subject Re: Problem Running Giraph application in a cluster
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:48:43 GMT
Hi Sai, your question is like "the question" for using Giraph.

Those resources depends on how much memory do you have on every node, it
depends if the cluster it's used for another user at the same time, depends
on the type of program that you are running, etc. Virtual memory can be
easily increased, but physical memory limit is a problem indeed.

I recommend you to post how much memory do you have available on each node
of your cluster to yarn, and maybe someone can give you a more precise
advice on how to tune those parameters.

You should look some old discussions about those values like this one:
