Subject OOM Error
Date Fri, 06 Sep 2019 23:33:54 GMT
I have a Spark job that consists of a large number of Window operations and
hence involves large shuffles. I have roughly 900 GiBs of data, although I
am using a large enough cluster (10 * m5.4xlarge instances). I am using the
following configurations for the job, although I have tried various other
combinations without any success.

spark.yarn.driver.memoryOverhead 6g 0.1
spark.executor.cores 6
spark.executor.memory 36g
spark.memory.offHeap.size 8g
spark.memory.offHeap.enabled true
spark.executor.instances 10
spark.driver.memory 14g
spark.yarn.executor.memoryOverhead 10g

I keep running into the following OOM error:

org.apache.spark.memory.SparkOutOfMemoryError: Unable to acquire 16384
bytes of memory, got 0
at org.apache.spark.memory.MemoryConsumer.throwOom(

I see there are a large number of JIRAs in place for similar issues and a
great many of them are even marked resolved.
Can someone guide me as to how to approach this problem? I am using
Databricks Spark 2.4.1.

Best Regards
