Subject [jira] [Updated] (NUTCH-1790) solrdedup causes OutOfMemoryError in Solr
Date Sat, 31 May 2014 16:20:01 GMT


Greg Padiasek updated NUTCH-1790:

    Summary: solrdedup causes OutOfMemoryError in Solr  (was: solrdedup in local mode causes
OutOfMemoryError in Solr)

>                 URL:
>             Project: Nutch
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: indexer
>    Affects Versions: 1.7, 2.2
>         Environment: Nutch in local mode.
> Solr 4.7 with 2M docs under Jetty with 2GB RAM.
>            Reporter: Greg Padiasek

> Nutch 1.7 and 2.2.1 use Hadoop 1.2. In this version Hadoop overwrites ""
variable set in mapred-site.xml and in local mode always sets it to 1. As a result Nutch creates
a giant query to read ALL Solr documents at once. This in turn causes Solr to consume all
RAM given number of documents is high. I found this issue with Solr running with 2M+ docs,
1GB JVM RAM, 20% of which is used under normal conditions. When running "solrdedup", memory
usage exceeds available RAM, solr throws OutOfMemoryError and the dedup job fails.
> I think this could be solved in one of two ways: either by upgrading Nutch to a later
version of Hadoop lib (which hopefully does not hard-coded "" value anymore),
or by changing the SolrDeleteDuplicates class to "stream" documents in batches. The later
would make Nutch less dependent on Hadoop version and this was my choice. Attached is a patch
that implements batch reading in local mode with user defined batch size. The "streaming"
is potentially also applicable in distributed mode.
