Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-3954) Clean up passing HEAPSIZE to yarn and mapred commands.
Date Thu, 01 Mar 2012 16:55:57 GMT
Clean up passing HEAPSIZE to yarn and mapred commands.

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-3954
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-3954
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: mrv2
    Affects Versions: 0.23.2
            Reporter: Robert Joseph Evans
            Assignee: Robert Joseph Evans
            Priority: Blocker

Currently the heap size for all of these is set in yarn-env.sh.  JAVA_HEAP_MAX is set to -Xmx1000m
unless YARN_HEAPSIZE is set.  If it is set it will override JAVA_HEAP_MAX.  However, we do
not always want to have the RM, NM, and HistoryServer with the exact same heap size.  It would
be logical to have inside of yarn and mapred to set JAVA_HEAP_MAX if YARN_RESOURCEMANAGER_HEAPSIZE,
is a bug because it is easy to configure the history server to store more entires then the
heap can hold.  It is also a performance issue if we do not allow the history server to cache
many entries on a large cluster.
