    Description

      Currently the RPC server just allocates however much memory the client asks for, without validating. It would be nice to make the maximum RPC buffer size configurable. This would prevent a rogue client from bringing down the NameNode (or other Hadoop daemon) with a few requests for 2 GB buffers. It would also make it easier to debug issues with super-large RPCs or malformed headers, since OOMs can be difficult for developers to reproduce.
