Spark On Yarn Error - Failed to send RPC




I am new to the big data world, and I am trying to build a Hadoop cluster by using docker. The spark shell did not work with the error message below:

Failed to send RPC 4858956348523471318 to / java.nio.channels.ClosedChannelException cluster.YarnSchedulerBackend$YarnSchedulerEndpoint: Sending RequestExecutors(0,0,Map()) to AM was unsuccessful


The problem looks like it can't connect to the ip address, so I start with testing the connection between spark to the ip address. The ping went through without problems.

Then I look at yarn to see if I can find any logs there, I discovered the error messages below:

Failing the application.

It looks obvious that the job containers were killed because the virtual memory usage exceed the allocated virtual memory error message. As a result, I need to increased the virtual memory.


I found out from official document that there is a config yarn.nodemanager.vmem-pmem-ratio that controls the ratio between physical memory and virtual memory. Increasing the ratio may help. This configuration is under /etc/hadoop/yarn-site.xml.

You can also change the config yarn.nodemanager.vmem-check-enabled to false by allowing virtual memory through hard drive. It could mean the execution of jobs become slower.
