Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7276) Limit the number of byte arrays used by DFSOutputStream
Date Thu, 30 Oct 2014 20:17:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7276?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14190742#comment-14190742

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-7276:

So, if we're managing powers of 2, we should have 16 managers at most for arrays up to 2**16.
 Actually less than that if we decide not to handle degenerate cases like n = 1, n =2 , n
=4... we can simply make 8 or 16 the smallest array we give out... I don't even think Packet
objects can be that small once you include the header, although I haven't checked the exact

Can't we simply create those 12 or so managers immediately, and avoid all the "create a new
manager if statistics say so" logic?

174	        wait(1000);
Why does this wait have a timeout?  There isn't anything that we're polling here.

...    synchronized int recycle(byte[] array) {
Shouldn't this simply be "notify"?  There is no point in waking up all waiters, because only
one of them is going to get the buffer we're recycling.

> When there are a lot of DFSOutputStream's writing concurrently, the number of outstanding
packets could be large.  The byte arrays created by those packets could occupy a lot of memory.
