Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5145) Balancer sometimes runs out of memory after days or weeks running
Date Tue, 03 Mar 2009 01:29:56 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5145?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12678186#action_12678186

Hairong Kuang commented on HADOOP-5145:

I plan to allow balancer to throw away blocks that was moved more than one and half hour ago.
I will use two windows of moved blocks: current window and old window. When a block is added,
it is always added to the current window. Between iterations, balancer tries to cleanup old
moved blocks. It checks to see if the blocks in the old window is at least 1.5 hour old. If
yes, it purges the old window and moves blocks in the current window to the old window.

> The culprit is a HashMap called MovedBlocks. By design this map does not get cleaned
up between iterations. This is because the deletion of source replicas is done by NN. When
next iteration starts, source replicas may not have been deleted, Balancer does not want to
schedule them to move again. To prevent running out of memory, Balancer should expire/clean
the movedBlocks from some iterations back.
