Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10591) Compression codecs must used pooled direct buffers or deallocate direct buffers when stream is closed
Date Thu, 17 Jul 2014 00:28:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10591?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14064390#comment-14064390

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HADOOP-10591:
-----------------------------------------------

Test failures are unrelated.  TestIPC is timing out resolving a hostname (looks like a jenkins
problem), and the symlink tests have been failing for some other patches too.

> Currently direct buffers allocated by compression codecs like Gzip (which allocates 2
direct buffers per instance) are not deallocated when the stream is closed. Eventually for
long running processes which create a huge number of files, these direct buffers are left
hanging till a full gc, which may or may not happen in a reasonable amount of time - especially
if the process does not use a whole lot of heap.
> Either these buffers should be pooled or they should be deallocated when the stream is
closed.
