Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4879) Add "blocked ArrayList" collection to avoid CMS full GCs
Date Wed, 05 Jun 2013 16:37:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4879?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13676089#comment-13676089
] 

Suresh Srinivas commented on HDFS-4879:
---------------------------------------

Given that the list is short lived, why not just use linked list. I don't think the cost of
an object and next pointer should be a big deal for a short lived object.

> We recently saw an issue where a large deletion was issued which caused 25M blocks to
be collected during {{deleteInternal}}. Currently, the list of collected blocks is an ArrayList,
meaning that we had to allocate a contiguous 25M-entry array (~400MB). After a NN has been
running for a long amount of time, the old generation may become fragmented such that it's
hard to find a 400MB contiguous chunk of heap.
> In general, we should try to design the NN such that the only large objects are long-lived
and created at startup time. We can improve this particular case (and perhaps some others)
by introducing a new List implementation which is made of a linked list of arrays, each of
which is size-limited (eg to 1MB).
