      Description

      Using jxray (www.jxray.com) I've analyzed a Yarn RM heap dump obtained in a big cluster. The tool uncovered several sources of memory waste. One problem is duplicate strings:

      Total strings 	  Unique strings 	  Duplicate values 	 Overhead 
       361,506	 86,672	 5,928	22,886K (7.6%)
      

      They are spread across a number of locations. The biggest source of waste is the following reference chain:

      
      7,416K (2.5%), 31292 / 62% dup strings (499 unique), 31292 dup backing arrays:
      ↖{j.u.HashMap}.values
      ↖org.apache.hadoop.yarn.api.records.impl.pb.ContainerLaunchContextPBImpl.environment
      ↖org.apache.hadoop.yarn.api.records.impl.pb.ApplicationSubmissionContextPBImpl.amContainer
      ↖org.apache.hadoop.yarn.server.resourcemanager.rmapp.RMAppImpl.submissionContext
      ↖{java.util.concurrent.ConcurrentHashMap}.values
      ↖org.apache.hadoop.yarn.server.resourcemanager.RMActiveServiceContext.applications
      ↖org.apache.hadoop.yarn.server.resourcemanager.RMContextImpl.activeServiceContext
      ↖org.apache.hadoop.yarn.server.resourcemanager.rmapp.monitor.RMAppLifetimeMonitor.rmContext
      ↖Java Local@3ed9ef820 (org.apache.hadoop.yarn.server.resourcemanager.rmapp.monitor.RMAppLifetimeMonitor)
      

      However, there are also many others. Mostly they are strings in proto buffer or proto buffer builder objects. I plan to get rid of at least the worst offenders by inserting String.intern() calls. String.intern() used to consume memory in PermGen and was not very scalable up until about the early JDK 7 versions, but has greatly improved since then, and I've used it many times without any issues.
