Description Alexandre Marangone 2017-03-13 18:19:59 UTC
Description of problem:
supervisord limits calamari-lite memory usage to 300M in /etc/systemd/system/supervisord.service.d/50-MemoryLimit.conf

On a cluster with 960 OSDs this created issues where requests to the calamari API would get stuck when importing the cluster to the console.
Changing the value to 1GB (guestimate) solved the issue.

1GB is not enough.

It seems to me that just bumping up the memory limit is a bad idea considering that we are collocated with the monitor. 

Boris, would you please see what we can do to replicate this and reduce the memory consumed?

Comment 4 Boris Ranto 2017-04-25 16:43:20 UTC
We no longer use supervisord (we switched to systemd) and we do not enforce any memory limit in systemd so in a way, the issue is solved in 2.2.

I am wondering whether we do keep way too many references in memory, though.

@Alexandre: Does the memory gets freed after the import? Please note that it may take up to a minute or so for it to get freed thanks to the nature of garbage collection.

Comment 5 Boris Ranto 2017-04-25 23:14:50 UTC
It turns out we do enforce a memory limit, not in the service file but with calamari-ctl, upstream PR to change the limit to half the available memory:
