Multiple occurrences of GC (Allocation Failure) could lead to OutOfMemory but if you only see single one that isn't probably the problem. If you still think this could be due memory, please review the following HC article on how to calculate and set appropriate memory for Knox:

@Felix Albani @Sindhu @Jay Kumar SenSharma @Geoffrey Shelton OkotHi,

knox gateway is going down on daily basis.i found only knox-gc.log with toaday's time stamp in /var/log/knox/ directory.

if you think that it is due to allocation failure can you please tell me how much memory i need to allocate for knox gateway.

in my gateway.sh file i found the below line.do i need to change the values here or any other place and please let me know how much memory i should give to resolve this issue.

APP_MEM_OPTS="-Xmx5g -XX:NewSize=3G -XX:MaxNewSize=3G -verbose:gc -XX:ParallelGCThreads=8 -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -Xloggc:/var/log/knox/knox-gc.log -XX:+PrintGCDetails -XX:+PrintGCTimeStamps -XX:+PrintGCDateStamps"


Thanks in advance

Re: Knox Gateway down

@kanna k

So based on the above logs you added I see

2018-07-10 09:55:07,592 ERROR hadoop.gateway (DefaultTopologyService.java:loadTopologies(252)) - Failed to load topology /usr/hdp/2.6.1.0-129/knox/bin/../conf/topologies/sample.xml: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; lineNumber: 41; columnNumber: 76; The reference to entity "ServiceAccounts" must end with the ';' delimiter.

This error points to a sample.xml topology file which has errors. Perhaps you can move it out from topologies directory or fix the problem in the before mentioned line.

As far as memory I already provided the link to calculate the memory for Knox in previous post. But as I mentioned, unless you are seeing OOM exceptions I don't think you are having memory problems. I would suggest you check the logs and see what is causing the knox server to go down.
