Pinned topic v8.0.0.1 'java.lang.OutOfMemoryError' errors in Graphical Mapping Node

‏2012-11-29T16:23:17Z |
I am trying to select data from a database table and map the resultset to a DFDL FixedRecord file or a DFDL CSV file. The data in the SQLServer tables are from 5 Mb to 130 Mb and the resulting DFDL file is about the same size. It seems like the Graphical Mapping node get the 'java.lang.OutOfMemoryError' when the select resultset is somewhere between 15 to 20 Mb of data. This is the case when the Execution Group (EG) has the following configuration:
JVM Heap Size = 512 Mb
JVM Stack Size = Default
JVMVerbose = None

There is only one messageflow processing in the EG, but there are 7 other messageflows deployed and running in the same application in the EG. This is the only application deployed in the EG.

The SQLServer JDBC 4.0 type 4 driver is used when connecting with integrated security to the SQLServer database. The connection URI property 'selectMethod=cursor' is used to get server-side cursor processing. It seems to have some effect on the processing in the mapping node.

The WMB version is, x64.
WMQ version is
OS is Windows 2008 R2 and the processor are AMD64.
Total Memory is 6 Gb on the server, and the total amount of memory used is below 3 Gb in the above JVM configuration.

I have tried to set the JVM Heap Size to 1,5 Gb and the JVM Stack Size to 10 Mb, but still got the 'java.lang.OutOfMemoryError' when trying to select data from a table containing 60 Mb of data without getting close to allocating the servers total memory. It is nothing special in my mapping I think, just a 'For Each' with a couple of 'fn:Replece'. But there are two fn:count mappings on the resultset to give the total number of records in the file and a couple of fn:Sum mappings. No Custom Java or ESQL.

I am aware of the fact that the WMB explode the data into a Message Tree, but I think the Mapping Node should cope with this amount of data. You could point out that this could have been done in a different way, but there are 'newbies' to WMB that are going to maintain the flows. And the mapping are a bit easier to understand than the other options in this case.

I need some help on what to do and if this should have been doable in the Graphical Mapping Node. If you need more information about this case, I'll be happy to provide further information. My next move would be something like a 'Flow-loop' reading just portions of the database every time in the mapping node, and controlling the looping and propagation to the 'FileOutput' node in a Compute node after the Mapping Node. The looping mechanism will be by putting and reading MQ messages from the same queue.

    I'm sorry but I forgot to mention that the the 60 Mb SQLServer table has 135381 rows. The one of about 18 Mb of data has 37587 rows, and this mapping is reporting error 'java.lang.OutOfMemoryError'.

    Below is some extracts of the heap dump files.
