ExecQueryFInstances rpc query_id=e74ef8d9b9215369:4994cbde00000000 failed

Explorer

We have an end-user who runs queries usually with Impala/HUE.  He is receiving this error, which I assume will require some changes in tuning parameters.  But where do we start to investigate here?  The error message is:

ExecQueryFInstances rpc query_id=e74ef8d9b9215369:4994cbde00000000 failed: Failed to get minimum memory reservation of 68.00 MB on daemon chia1.haas.berkeley.edu:22000 for query e74ef8d9b9215369:4994cbde00000000 because it would exceed an applicable memory limit. Memory is likely oversubscribed. Reducing query concurrency or configuring admission control may help avoid this error.

@zane,

The issues I can see from this profile as below:

1. The query got closed due to client inactivity:
Query f64da6a899944136:22dcac6800000000 expired due to client inactivity (timeout is 10m)

Not because of OOM

2. you do not have table stats, which can cause impala to use bad query plan:

WARNING: The following tables are missing relevant table and/or column statistics.
external_data.physician_compare

This is evident that in the SUMMARY section, the estimated rows are -1:

Operator #Hosts Avg Time Max Time #Rows Est. #Rows Peak Mem Est. Peak Mem Detail
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
01:EXCHANGE 1 189.890ms 189.890ms 1.02K -1 0 0 UNPARTITIONED
00:SCAN HDFS 5 98.859ms 104.753ms 22.53K -1 78.33 MB 176.00 MB external_data.physician_compare

3. Query finished in about 1 second, as result was ready after 1.45 seconds:

First row fetched: 1.45s

4. I can see the query is most likely from hue:

Session Type: HIVESERVER2

So my conclusion is that user stayed in Hue Hive editor idle until query is closed from server side. There is no issue from the query itself whatsoever.

Cheers

Hi @Zane- 

This is an OOM (Out If Memory) error, it simply means that this query needs more memory to be completed; it usually occurs when the cluster is in charge. The request has exceeded the existing memory.
  The solution is to add more memory to your nodes or to add more nodes. Otherwise, try to optimize your queries, and you can make sure that your impala setting is optimal too.

Good Luck.

While I would normally assume this is true, the error is occurring on queries that were previously successful and completing without errors.  Something has changed the memory consumption behavior and the error message received hasn't been particularly helpful for troubleshooting.  I will continue the investigation.

Hi Zane,

Please share the failed query PROFILE as attachment to the thread if possible.

Also, what's the default MEMORY_LIMIT for Impala? Have you tried to increase this limit to see if it can help with the query?

SET MEMORY_LIMIT=20g;

Of course the value will depend on how much memory you have on your impala daemon host.

Cheers

I increased the MEMORY_LIMIT to 96GB (up from ~79GB), and I cannot increase it any further without over-allocating memory overall.

 

The latest query errors have been similar to this one, whose profile I have attached.

Here is another query profile, which the error condition just occurred for the end-user, attached.

Thank you for your assessment, which is spot-on.

 

I think that the adjustments to MEMORY_LIMIT plus previously setting the idle session and query limits to 10m helped with the prior OOM problem, especially when multiple users are active.  We are relatively new to Hadoop/Impala and so we are still learning a lot about how to configure and work with the data within the environment, in tuning the performance, and tailoring the configuration to work well within the limits of the available hardware.

 

In general, I wish there were documentation that specifically address errors and performance tuning.  It would provide more insights into troubleshooting problems and interpreting the errors received.  Maybe there is a book already published that's good for this?  It would be a huge help!
