Re: OutOfMemoryError in MapReduce Job

thanks for your answer! I increase the "Map Task Maximum Heap Size" to 2gb
and it seems to work. The OutOfMemoryEroror is gone. But the HBase Region
server are now crashing all the time :-/ I try to store the bitvector
(120mb in size) for some rows. This seems to be very memory intensive, the
usedHeapMB increase very fast (up to 2gb). I'm  not sure if it is the
reading or the writing task which causes this, but I thnk its the writing
task. Any idea how to minimize the memory usage? My mapper looks like this:

public class MyMapper extends TableMapper<ImmutableBytesWritable, Put> {

private void storeBitvectorToHBase(
        Put row = new Put(name);
        row.add(cf,    Bytes.toBytes("columname"), toByteArray(bitvector));
        ImmutableBytesWritable key = new ImmutableBytesWritable(
        context.write(key, row);
kind regards
