Subject [jira] Created: (MAPREDUCE-1248) Redundant memory copying in StreamKeyValUtil
Date Mon, 30 Nov 2009 09:47:20 GMT
Redundant memory copying in StreamKeyValUtil
--------------------------------------------

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-1248
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1248
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: contrib/streaming
            Reporter: Ruibang He
            Priority: Minor


I found that when MROutputThread collecting the output of  Reducer, it calls StreamKeyValUtil.splitKeyVal()
and two local byte-arrays are allocated there for each line of output. Later these two byte-arrays
are passed to variable key and val. There are twice memory copying here, one is the System.arraycopy()
method, the other is inside key.set() / val.set().

This causes double times of memory copying for the whole output (may lead to higher CPU consumption),
and frequent temporay object allocation.
