Apache Spark reassigned SPARK-18557:

    Assignee: Apache Spark  (was: Reynold Xin)

> Downgrade the memory leak warning message
> -----------------------------------------
>                 Key: SPARK-18557
>                 URL:
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Spark Core
>            Reporter: Reynold Xin
>            Assignee: Apache Spark
> TaskMemoryManager has a memory leak detector that gets called at task completion callback
and checks whether any memory has not been released. If they are not released by the time
the callback is invoked, TaskMemoryManager releases them.
> The current error message says something like the following:
> {noformat}
> WARN  [Executor task launch worker-0]
> org.apache.spark.memory.TaskMemoryManager - leak 16.3 MB memory from
> {noformat}
> In practice, there are multiple reasons why these can be triggered in the normal code
path (e.g. limit, or task failures), and the fact that these messages are log means the "leak"
is fixed by TaskMemoryManager.
> To not confuse users, we should downgrade the message from warning to debug level, and
avoid using the word "leak" since it is not actually a leak.
