Sorry for the late reply.Thanks ATM, Colin and others. Indeed applying the patch took care
of most of the memory issues. Now we are tackling the sudden increase in the number of active
threads. We will post more concrete problem definition shortly.

 Hi Mohammad,

Like ATM said, HDFS-8965 is an important fix in this area.  We have
found that it prevents cases where INotify tries to read invalid
sequences of bytes (sometimes because the edit log was truncated or
corrupted; other times because it is in the middle of a write).
HDFS-8964 fixes the "attempt to read edit log entries that are still
being written."  Both fixes have value when using INotify.

The other question is how many INotify clients you have
simultaneously?  Right now, INotify works best with a small number of
clients, since it involves doing RPCs to the NameNode.  There is some
work going on to scale out INotify to support many clients in
