Date Fri, 01 Jun 2012 16:28:22 GMT
Robert Joseph Evans created MAPREDUCE-4301:

             Summary: Dedupe some strings in MRAM for memory savings
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-4301
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4301
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: applicationmaster
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha, 0.23.3
            Reporter: Robert Joseph Evans
            Assignee: Robert Joseph Evans

Recently an OutOfMemoryError caused one of our jobs to become a zombie (MAPREDUCE-4300). 
It was a rather large job with 78000+ map tasks and only 750MB of heap configured.  I took
a heap dump to see if there were any obvious memory leaks, and I could not find any, but yourkit
and some digging found some potential memory optimizations that we could do.

In this particular case we could save about 20MB if SplitMetaInfoReader.readSplitMetaInfo
only computed the JobSplitFile once instead of for each split. (a 2 line change)

I will look into some others and see if there are more savings I can come up with.
