Memory consumption - something is using all the available memory

I have a problem but with 7.3.12. I moved all the rowstore tables into a columnstore (was not the idea but I dont know what else to try)
And still everything is randomly failing due to memory usage, event a simple create table command.

I run this and I’m using only 7gb of memory (my cluster has 124 gb)

select DATABASE_NAME ,table_name, sum(memory_use)/(1024 1024 1024) m
from information_schema.table_statistics
group by table_name,DATABASE_NAME
order by 3 desc

I not sure what’s causing the memory consumption. The only different thing is that we created 50 databases with rowstore tables, but all of them are empty… Does it allocate memory as well?

Memory used by MemSQL (20280.25 Mb) has reached the ‘maximum_memory’ setting (20480 Mb) on this node. Possible causes include (1) available query execution memory has been used up for table memory (in use table memory: 12998.38 Mb) and (2) the query is large and complex and requires more query executi

and sometimes the error is in use table memory: 0 Mb

I don’t have specific advice to offer, but here’s good information in our documentation regarding how to deal with out-of-memory conditions.

hi @hanson thank you, I already read all the documentation but something is not ok with this db.

For instance, I’m getting this error:
available query execution memory has been used up for table memory (in use table memory: 17386.75 Mb)

But in show status extended it shows: Alloc_table_memory 2885.353 MB

I’m querying that during the execution of the query, and it doesn’t change. Something is consuming the table memory and looks like Singlestore doesn’t know

Hi @moralez.rodrigo, @hanson,

I’m running into a similar issue here, and still waiting for a comprehensive answer.


It’s crazy, I have 4x32gb servers, only 1 query running, not so complicated, and still getting out of memory. I move every table to columnar to save memory and still the same

I have many (not so many) rowstore empty tables and empty databases, does it reserve memory?

@hanson any idea? we store json fields on columnar table, does it consume memory?

hi. Have you tried opening a ticket with support? They always ask for cluster support and tell you immediately what resources are being used, and how, based on that.

There is something defiantly wrong with Singlestore. I dont think their database is optimized enough. We have S00, and it is not able to execute one insert query where size if 4 mb and there is no other load running on the machine even having 1 GB of available memory.

My worries is that even if we plan to upgrade but looks like ppl are even facing same with 4x32gb servers.

This is something Singlestore team needs to improve on.

@moralez.rodrigo Did you find anything? how did it resolve for you?

Hi @bhaskar, if you can give more details about how to reproduce the problem, maybe somebody can offer help. If you’re a paying customer, you can also open a support ticket if you need to.
