Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-5857) Excessive heap usage on controller node during reassignment
Date Fri, 15 Sep 2017 15:54:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-5857?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16168063#comment-16168063

Raoufeh Hashemian commented on KAFKA-5857:

I was able to reproduce the problem when shrinking a topic of the same size from 12 to 6 brokers.

This time , before the controller runs out of memory, stopped the kafka service in the controller
node and this caused the other nodes to get busy again and delete their already moved partition.
The partition reassignment finished successfully . However, the controller node was a source
node (in the list of nodes that were expected to have no partition replicas after reassignment)
. I guess the result could be different if the controller node was one of the destination

It looks more like a bug in the controller rather than an inefficient heap usage.

>             Project: Kafka
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: controller
>    Affects Versions:
>         Environment: CentOs 7, Java 1.8
>            Reporter: Raoufeh Hashemian
>              Labels: reliability
>             Fix For: 1.1.0

> I was trying to expand our kafka cluster of 6 broker nodes to 12 broker nodes. 
> Before expansion, we had a single topic with 960 partitions and a replication factor
of 3. So each node had 480 partitions. The size of data in each node was 3TB . 
> To do the expansion, I submitted a partition reassignment plan (see attached file for
the current/new assignments). The plan was optimized to minimize data movement and be rack
> When I submitted the plan, it took approximately 3 hours for moving data from old to
new nodes to complete. After that, it started deleting source partitions (I say this based
on the number of file descriptors) and rebalancing leaders which has not been successful.
Meanwhile, the heap usage in the controller node started to go up with a large slope (along
with long GC times) and it took 5 hours for the controller to go out of memory and another
controller started to have the same behaviour for another 4 hours. At this time the zookeeper
ran out of disk and the service stopped.
> To recover from this condition:
> 1) Removed zk logs to free up disk and restarted all 3 zk nodes
> 2) Deleted /kafka/admin/reassign_partitions node from zk
> 3) Had to do unclean restarts of kafka service on oom controller nodes which took 3 hours
to complete  . After this stage there was still 676 under replicated partitions.
> 4) Do a clean restart on all 12 broker nodes.
> After step 4 , number of under replicated nodes went to 0.
> So I was wondering if this memory footprint from controller is expected for 1k partitions
? Did we do sth wrong or it is a bug?
> Attached are some resource usage graph during this 30 hours event and the reassignment
plan. I'll try to add log files as well
