Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7276) Limit the number of byte arrays used by DFSOutputStream
Date Fri, 31 Oct 2014 21:05:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7276?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14192487#comment-14192487

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-7276:
--------------------------------------------

bq. This is a simple concurrent problem. I believe you can work out a deadlock example. If
not, please feel free to come back to me.

I don't see any case where this would deadlock if we used {{notify}} rather than {{notifyAll}}.
 Maybe I missed it.

> 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.
