Subject cannot allocate memory error
Date Wed, 31 Dec 2008 14:16:18 GMT

I am new to hadoop. I am running hapdoop 0.17 in a Eucalyptus cloud
instance (its a centos image on xen)

bin/hadoop dfs -ls /
gives the following Exception

08/12/31 08:58:10 WARN fs.FileSystem: "localhost:9000" is a deprecated
filesystem name. Use "hdfs://localhost:9000/" instead.
08/12/31 08:58:10 WARN fs.FileSystem: uri=hdfs://localhost:9000

Running the command again gives.
bin/hadoop dfs -ls /
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for object heap

Changing value of 'mapred.child.java.opts' property in hadoop-site.xml
did not help.

Kindly help me. What could I do to give more memory to hadoop?

BTW is there a way to search through the mail archive? I only saw the
mails listed according to year and months.
