Subject [jira] [Created] (KAFKA-5470) Replace -XX:+DisableExplicitGC with -XX:+ExplicitGCInvokesConcurrent in kafka-run-class
Date Mon, 19 Jun 2017 15:17:00 GMT
Ismael Juma created KAFKA-5470:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Replace -XX:+DisableExplicitGC with -XX:+ExplicitGCInvokesConcurrent
in kafka-run-class
                 Key: KAFKA-5470
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-5470
             Project: Kafka
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Ismael Juma
            Priority: Critical


This is important because Bits.reserveMemory calls System.gc() hoping to free native memory
in order to avoid throwing an OutOfMemoryException. This call is currently a no-op due to
-XX:+DisableExplicitGC.

It's worth mentioning that -XX:MaxDirectMemorySize can be used to increase the amount of native
memory available for allocation of direct byte buffers.

Hongyuan Li pointed out the issue with the usage of -XX:+DisableExplicitGC in: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-5444?focusedCommentId=16054129&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-16054129
