Subject Re: zk connection leak with TableInput/OutputFormat (CDH3b4, 0.90.1)
Date Sat, 16 Apr 2011 11:56:51 GMT
I did more research and found the issue.

The TableInputFormat creates an HTable using a new Configuration object, and it never cleans
it up. When running a Mapper, the TableInputFormat is instantiated and the ZK connection is
created. While this connection is not explicitly cleaned up, the Mapper process eventually
exits and thus the connection is closed. Ideally the TableRecordReader would close the connection
in its close() method rather than relying on the process to die for connection cleanup. This
is fairly easy to implement by overriding TableRecordReader, and also overriding TableInputFormat
to specify the new record reader.

The leak occurs when the JobClient is initializing and needs to retrieves the splits. To get
the splits, it instantiates a TableInputFormat. Doing so creates a ZK connection that is never
cleaned up. Unlike the mapper, however, my job client process does not die. Thus the ZK connections

I was able to fix the problem by writing my own TableInputFormat that does not initialize
the HTable in the getConf() method and does not have an HTable member variable. Rather, it
has a variable for the table name. The HTable is instantiated where needed and then cleaned
up. For example, in the getSplits() method, I create the HTable, then close the connection
once the splits are retrieved. I also create the HTable when creating the record reader, and
I have a record reader that closes the connection when done.

Calling HConnectionManager.deleteAllConnections() is not desirable in my case, as I may have
some connections that I do not want deleted.
