The alterts indicated CRITIAL because of

This happened very very frequently.

Please kindly help to solve this problem.Thanks.

I had tryied the best answer in

XMN should be 15 % of Xmx, suggest setting this value to at 1 GB. maxperm does not need to be more than 128M

Rising Star

Which two? I'm not fimiliar with JVM.

Expert Contributor
In embedded mode we combine region server and hbase heapsize since there is only 1 daemon running.

Xmn settings:
regionserver_xmn_size
hbase_master_xmn_size

JDK8 perm setting is unnecessary since it is offheap, so effectively the setting itself doesn't matter.

@Huahua Wei

Good to know that you are not getting alert frequently. However i would like to add about one eye catching setting that you have made.

ams-hbase-env::hbase_master_maxperm_size 128 MB ===>> 8192 MB  (too High value)

PermGen: It space stands for memory allocation for Permanent generation All Java immutable objects come under this category, like String which is created with literals or with String.intern() methods and for loading the classes into memory

Basically class definitions are loaded in this area of JVM. 8192 is much much high value. AMS Hbase master does not consume that much memory. So you may reduce that value to at least 8 times lower 🙂

If you want to check how much permgen was utilized at any point of time then you can do the following:

# su - ams
# ps -ef | grep ^ams | grep HMaster
# /JAVA_HOME/bin/jmap  -heap   $PID_HMASTER
.
.

OUTPUT (Example)
PS Perm Generation
   capacity = 57671680 (55.0MB)
   used     = 41699008 (39.76727294921875MB)
   free     = 15972672 (15.23272705078125MB)
   72.30413263494319% used

.

NOTE: From JDK 1.8 onwards that "PermGen" space is replaced with "MetaSpace".

@Jay SenSharma no "MetaSpace" can't be found in my env.

@Huahua Wei

Yes it is right there in your output :

MetaspaceSize            = 21807104 (20.796875MB)     
CompressedClassSpaceSize = 1073741824 (1024.0MB)
MaxMetaspaceSize         = 17592186044415 MB        

.

MetaSpace is not displayed same as the "PermGen" used to be present in the Java7 (or previous version of java) jmap output. But you can use some profilers to monitor it.

Or enable garbage collection logging to get the Garbage collection information of your JVM that will also show the metaspace current usage.

Example GC log:

   [GC (Allocation Failure) 
      1.055: [DefNew: 861K->64K(960K), 0.0008510 secs]
      1.056: [Tenured: 1226K->1279K(1280K), 0.0009817 secs]
      1303K->1290K(2240K), 
      [Metaspace: 44K->44K(4480K)],     ------> NOTICE
      0.0019995 secs] 

.

@Jay SenSharma Why this is so big?

MaxMetaspaceSize=17592186044415 MB

Super Mentor

@Huahua Wei

Ideally the "MaxMetaspaceSize" has no upper limit. Please see:

http://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/vm/gctuning/considerations.html

The amount of native memory that can be used for class metadata is by default unlimited. Use the option MaxMetaspaceSize to put an upper limit on the amount of native memory used for class metadata. 

.

Regarding the tuning parameter you might want to tune it as following:

Something you should try with this:
----------------------------------------
ams-hbase-env::hbase_master_heapsize 1152 MB ===>> 8192 MB 
ams-hbase-env::hbase_master_maxperm_size 128 MB ===>> 128 MB  (or 256 MB)
ams-hbase-env::hbase_regionserver_heapsize 768 MB ===>> 8192 MB 
ams-hbase-env::regionserver_xmn_size 128 MB ===>> 1280 MB  to 1536 MB

.

In JDK 1.8 PermGen space is replaced with MetaSpace. And it is always better to set the "MaxMetaspaceSize" so that if there is any classloader leak then it will not grow beyond the MaxMetaspaceSize boundary else it may cause huge system memory utilization (in case of leak).

And also disable (exclude) HBase per region metrics to avoid data flooding.

Finally, I setted as @Jay SenSharma suggested aboved. Working well. Thanks
