Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-842) option to dump histogram of memory usage when heap is low on memory
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2014 00:47:03 GMT


Sergey Edunov commented on GIRAPH-842:

Hey Pavan, this is great feature, here are some comments on implementation:

1) Please assign your thread some meaningful name, it can be helpful in debugging stack traces.
2) Stop flag has to be volatile, otherwise your thread may never see the change
3) I would let the thread die if you get InterruptedException.
4) runtime.freeMemory() might give you false alarms if you run job with different values of
Xmx and Xms. This is because freeMemory only counts free bytes currently allocated to JVM.
If your Xmx setting is bigger than Xms you can go low on freeMemory before JVM allocates another
chunk. To get more accurate results you can do (maxMemory - totalMemory + freeMemory)

jmap -histo dump when heap has very little free space left.
