Impala Memory limit exceed

New Contributor

hi there,

I have encountered a common error as follows:

Memory left in process limit: 180.41 GB
Memory left in query limit: -467.80 KB
Query(7e4794a439e5f26d:748d4c7c00000000): memory limit exceeded. Limit=1.00 GB Reservation=635.75 MB ReservationLimit=819.20 MB OtherMemory=388.71 MB Total=1.00 GB Peak=1.00 GB

I don't quite understand the difference between the "process limit" and "query limit", and what's the reservation memory for?

many thanks!

Hi,

I'm not sure which situation you are indicating. Your query might been restricted by MEM_LIMIT. 

 

process limit: set by --mem-limit startup option

query limit: set by MEM_LIMIT in your query through impala-shell or jdbc...

plz check this reference: https://impala.apache.org/docs/build/html/topics/impala_mem_limit.html
