How if Process total vitual memory calculated

(Ramaseshan) #1

I was generating some stats for ElasticSearch Node. Looking at this API in the above url, I am trying to figure out how is the process..mem.total_virtual_in_bytes is calculated and what exactly does it mean.

ES : 2.4.0
Java : OpenJDK 1.7.0_111
OS : Ubuntu 14.04

I have so far traced it all the way to MxBean in Java itself.

Running this code in a standalone is giving me data close to what this parameter( process..mem.total_virtual_in_bytes) is showing.

Also I ran the code with the same parameters elastic search run with.
I see about 70MB difference. Is that an acceptable difference ?

I ran it like this "java -Xms256m -Xmx1g -Djava.awt.headless=true -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:CMSInitiatingOccupancyFraction=75 -XX:+UseCMSInitiatingOccupancyOnly -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Djna.nosys=true -Des.path.home=/usr/share/elasticsearch -cp /usr/share/elasticsearch/lib/elasticsearch-2.4.1.jar:/usr/share/elasticsearch/lib/* org.elasticsearch.bootstrap.Elasticsearch"

Where am I missing the 70MB here ?
