Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6754) DefaultCodec.createOutputStream() leaks memory
Date Fri, 07 May 2010 08:14:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6754?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12865077#action_12865077

Hong Tang commented on HADOOP-6754:

DefaultCodec.createOutputStream(OutputStream out) would be useful when you do not use native
compression library. Otherwise, a direct buffer would be created and leaked. The problem with
direct buffer is that it is not accounted under garbage collection and thus you may exhaust
the memory yet does not trigger gc.

Even if the OutputStream is closed, this leaks memory.
