High Cpu in Idle State


(mxol78) #1

Hi,

I have been testing elasticsearch and have found it to slowly start using 100% of cpu even when there are no queries taking place. There's only few documents getting bulk indexed after every 10 seconds. But elasticsearch search is still using a lot of cpu in those idle 10 seconds.

I am using elasticsearch 0.90.2, mlockall at 1gb, fielddata cache set to soft. I don't think gc is the issue as there was no log warnings of slow gc calls.

It seems to be taking time in 1) org.elasticsearch.indices.cache.filter.IndicesFilterCache$ReaderCleaner
and 2) java.util.concurrent.SynchronousQueue$TransferStack.awaitFulfill

Hi Max,

It looks like the cpu usage is coming from the background process that
cleans up cached filters. Are you make heavy use of changing filters (some
filters are cached by default).

You can check the size of the filter cache and the number of eviction but
calling:

curl -XGET "http://localhost:9200/_nodes/stats/?indices&pretty"

Cheers,
Boaz

Hi,

The filter cache was growing gradually because of changing filters.

Modifying filter cache type to soft keeps it in check and seems to solve the problem.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Cheers

The price you pay for soft references is heavy random activity on CPU and
GC if your cache is small. You should try to increase the cache size to
lower the risk of that, or consider to drop soft references.

Hi Max,
I also wonder if you actually need those changing filters to be cached.
What kind of filters are they?
If you don't need them in cache you can just disable caching for each of
those using "_cache" : false .

Cheers
Luca
