Subject [Impala-ASF-CR] IMPALA-3611: track unused Disk IO buffer memory
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2016 17:54:36 GMT
Hello Internal Jenkins, Dan Hecht,

I'd like you to reexamine a change.  Please visit

to look at the new patch set (#5).

Change subject: IMPALA-3611: track unused Disk IO buffer memory

IMPALA-3611: track unused Disk IO buffer memory

Track I/O buffers against separate MemTrackers. This gives us better
visibility into memory consumption from the debug webpage and from
MemTracker consumption dumps. The immediate motivation was in trying to
determine whether idle memory consumption of an impalad was caused by a
memory leak.

We add two trackers: for buffers cached in DiskIoMgr's free list,
and another for clients that don't provide a MemTracker (the only
one is BufferedBlockMgr, which will be removed at some point).

The previous code "tracked" the buffers against the process-wide
tracker, but it was a no-op outside of ASAN builds since the
process-wide tracker took its value from TCMalloc.

The test code required fixing because it assumed that buffers were
always credited against the DiskIoMgr's tracker. This only made sense
when the DiskIoMgr's tracker is the root process-wide tracker.

Fix backend test logging for disk-io-mgr-test.

Ran exhaustive tests.
