Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4956) Control direct memory buffer consumption by HBaseClient
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2012 23:05:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4956?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13182908#comment-13182908

stack commented on HBASE-4956:

Hmmm... Looking in code, we allocate a BufferedOutputStream using default buffer size:

        this.out = new DataOutputStream
            (new BufferedOutputStream(NetUtils.getOutputStream(socket)));

... so, it seems that yeah, at any one time, you'd think the maximum allocation 8k as you
say Lars.

Jonathan says 3 of these buffers allocated when reading.  Presume similar writing (easy to
check I suppose.  I havent').  Thats 6*8k per thread since these are thread local.... which
still don't seem like that much.  You'd need lots of threads to run into trouble.

We need to reproduce.

, standard hbase client inadvertently consumes large amount of direct memory.
> We should consider using netty for NIO-related tasks.
