Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3644) TestLocalJobControl test gets OutOfMemoryError on 64-bit Java
Date Thu, 10 Jul 2008 02:29:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3644?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12612353#action_12612353

Matei Zaharia commented on HADOOP-3644:

It's up to you whether to raise the limit by default or not, but the reason I'd suggest doing
it is to avoid confusing new users. It's very confusing to check out a stable release of Hadoop
and see it failing unit tests. That's what happened to me - I checked out Hadoop, I made some
small changes, I tried running the tests, and this completely unrelated test was failing.
64-bit Linux is not an esoteric platform these days and raising the limit to 512 will probably
work fine on other platforms, so why have the unit tests fail on purpose for this configuration?

> 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.
