Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-45) Improve the way to keep outgoing messages
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2011 20:48:54 GMT


Jakob Homan commented on GIRAPH-45:

bq. I'm not sure whether sending messages in a streamy way would actually diminish any kind
of memory pressure.
Right. As above, the total amount of bytes that would have to be stored *somewhere* would
be the same (absent any advantage we get from having more combine-able messages in one place
to be combined).  We'd be potentially saving (very slow) disk bandwidth by putting them on
the network immediately where, depending on the destination's memory situation, it may or
may not make sense to spill to disk, to combine, etc.

> As discussed in GIRAPH-12(, I think that there is a potential problem
to cause out of memory when the rate of message generation is higher than the rate of message
flush (or network bandwidth).
> To overcome this problem, we need more eager strategy for message flushing or some approach
to spill messages into disk.
