intitally i thought it is because of batchsize , i used the batch size 10000 and also  doubled memory hard limit in kudu to 2GB but still same error is coming .

Hi,

 

2GB is still on the small side, especially if you have a lot of tablets. Here's the recommendation: http://kudu.apache.org/docs/known_issues.html#_server_management

 

Also, which version of Kudu? How many data dirs? How many maintenance manager threads?

 

Thanks,

Ok, with 1 disk you wouldn't want more than 1 maintenance manager threads.

 

The log lines you showed can mean that the tablet server is still starting up. Depending on the amount of data and the number of tablets, it can take minutes. You can also run "kudu cluster ksck <master_addresses" to see what's up the all the tablets.

Still same error

but only these two causing this error

four tablet servers are

Ok so it seems the things you previously pasted were resolved when your Kudu cluster finished booting up.

 

When you say "same error", you mean on the client side you're still getting timeouts? I'm asking because what you're showing after that are warnings, not errors, and it's perfectly normal to get memory pushback when servers are too busy.

 

Now this can either mean two things: you're trying to insert faster than Kudu can ingest it based on the resources (disks/ram/cpu) it's given, or there's something wrong with flushing and it's too slow. Having a much bigger log snippet from wewcw0hd3dn01 or wewcw0hd3dn04 would help.

Hi, is this the only solution for this kind of error - increasing the memory limit? Thannks
