Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-3098) Memory leak from large number of FileSystem instances in FileSystem.CACHE. (Must cache UGIs.)
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2012 18:06:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-3098?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13444267#comment-13444267

Ashutosh Chauhan commented on HIVE-3098:
----------------------------------------

Mithun:

Sorry for being late in getting back on this one. Patch looks good. There is a similar leak
(and thus same fix) for unsecure case as well. It will be good to get that in too.

>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Shims
>    Affects Versions: 0.9.0
>         Environment: Running with Hadoop 20.205.0.3+ / 1.0.x with security turned on.

> The problem manifested from stress-testing HCatalog 0.4.1 (as part of testing the Oracle
backend).
> The HCatalog server ran out of memory (-Xmx2048m) when pounded by 60-threads, in under
24 hours. The heap-dump indicates that hadoop::FileSystem.CACHE had 1000000 instances of FileSystem,
whose combined retained-mem consumed the entire heap.
> It boiled down to hadoop::UserGroupInformation::equals() being implemented such that
the "Subject" member is compared for equality ("=="), and not equivalence (".equals()"). This
causes equivalent UGI instances to compare as unequal, and causes a new FileSystem instance
to be created and cached.
> The UGI.equals() is so implemented, incidentally, as a fix for yet another problem (HADOOP-6670);
so it is unlikely that that implementation can be modified.
> The solution for this is to check for UGI equivalence in HCatalog (i.e. in the Hive metastore),
using an cache for UGI instances in the shims.
> I have a patch to fix this. I'll upload it shortly. I just ran an overnight test to confirm
that the memory-leak has been arrested.
