> We currently use memory mapped files to buffer data as it's being sorted in an ORDER
BY (see MappedByteBufferQueue). The following types of exceptions have been seen to occur:

> Caused by: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Map failed

> {code}
> [~apurtell] has read that memory mapped files are not cleaned up after very well in Java:

> "Map failed" means the JVM ran out of virtual address space. If you search around stack
overflow for suggestions on what to do when your app (in this case Phoenix) encounters this
issue when using mapped buffers, the answers tend toward manually cleaning up the mapped buffers
or explicitly triggering a full GC. See
for example. There are apparently long standing JVM/JRE problems with reclamation of mapped
buffers. I think we may want to explore in Phoenix a different way to achieve what the current
code is doing.

> Instead of using memory mapped files, we could use heap memory, or perhaps there are
other mechanisms too.
