Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3644) TestLocalJobControl test gets OutOfMemoryError on 64-bit Java
Date Mon, 07 Jul 2008 22:44:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3644?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12611382#action_12611382

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-3644:

* Java 64 bit often requires 1.5X memory as its pointers are bigger. JRockit uses "short"
pointers for references in the nearest 4GB memory, so avoids a lot of memory bloat. But it
has other "issues".

* I've debated tweaking Ant for a different multiplier on 64 bit JVMs, so the memory can get
scaled up.

> The TestLocalJobControl unit test fails on 64-bit Java on Linux with an OutOfMemoryError.
Here is the exact Java environment:
> $ java -version
> java version "1.5.0_07"
> Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_07-b03)
> Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.5.0_07-b03, mixed mode)
> The test runs fine with 32-bit Java. The problem is likely that some of the data structures
become bigger when using 64-bit pointers. As a fix, I've suggested simply increasing the memory
available to JUnit.
