How to free memory after H5Fclose

Castro Rojo, Rodrigo
Hi,

I am using HDF5 storage in SWMR mode. I am open files with huge number of datasets and then I close it but after H5Fclose the amount of memory reserved by the process is the same.

The same effect happens when data is written to a data set. All memory reserved by the process (for chunks, caches, etc) is not freed after file is closed (H5Fclose).

I have checked with valgrind but no memory leak is detected. It seams there is a free of memory before the process finishes but I need this free when file is closed.

Is possible to have memory free after H5Fclose without finishing the process?
 

A simplified example of my code follows the typical sequence:

———————————————————————————————
#include "hdf5.h"
#include "hdf5_hl.h"
#include <stdlib.h>

// Number of tables to create
#define NUM_DATASETS 10000
#define CHUNK_SIZE 100

typedef struct
{
        double data;
      long long timestamp;
} data_t;

int main(void)
{
        hid_t fid;
        hid_t sid;
        hid_t dcpl;
  hid_t pdsets[NUM_DATASETS];
        char dname[300];
    hsize_t dims[2] = {1, 0}; /* Dataset starting dimensions */
    hsize_t max_dims[2] = {1, H5S_UNLIMITED}; /* Dataset maximum dimensions */
        hsize_t chunk_dims[2] = {1, CHUNK_SIZE}; /* Chunk dimensions */
        int i;

        printf("Creating file\n");

  // Open file
        fid = H5Fcreate("packet.h5", H5F_ACC_TRUNC | H5F_ACC_SWMR_WRITE, H5P_DEFAULT, H5P_DEFAULT);
       
        // Create compound data type
        hid_t datatype = H5Tcreate(H5T_COMPOUND, sizeof(data_t));
        H5Tinsert(datatype, "Data", HOFFSET(data_t, data), H5T_NATIVE_DOUBLE);
        H5Tinsert(datatype, "Timestamp", HOFFSET(data_t, timestamp), H5T_NATIVE_LLONG);

    /* Create dataspace for creating datasets */
    if((sid = H5Screate_simple(2, dims, max_dims)) < 0)
        return 1;

         /* Create dataset creation property list */
    if((dcpl = H5Pcreate(H5P_DATASET_CREATE)) < 0)
        return -1;
    if(H5Pset_chunk(dcpl, 2, chunk_dims) < 0)
        return -1;

        printf("Creating %d datasets\n", NUM_DATASETS);
        // Create datasets
        for (i = 0; i < NUM_DATASETS; i++) {
                sprintf(dname,"dset_%d",i);
  if((pdsets[i] = H5Dcreate2(fid, dname, datatype, sid, H5P_DEFAULT, dcpl, H5P_DEFAULT)) < 0)
             return 1;
                if(H5Dclose(pdsets[i]) < 0)
             return -1;
        }

        printf("Closing everything\n");

        if(H5Pclose(dcpl) < 0)
        return -1;
        if(H5Sclose(sid) < 0)
        return -1;
    if(H5Tclose(datatype) < 0)
        return -1;
    if(H5Fclose(fid) < 0)
        return -1;

        printf("After closing...\n");

    return 0;
}

Re: How to free memory after H5Fclose

Dana Robinson
Hi Rodrigo,

From what I understand, glibc (I'm using Linux as an example) can either service memory requests using sbrk(2) to increase the process break (smaller allocations) or mmap(2) (larger allocations, over ~128k on most systems but I think this is dynamic now). Anything served from mmap() should, in theory, be immediately reclaimable by the kernel after a call to free() but I believe this is done lazily. You can probably check this by writing to drop_caches (as described here: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/17936/setting-proc-sys-vm-drop-caches-to-clear-cache ) after the H5Fclose() call and seeing what happens to your program's memory footprint. I would image that most of what is causing your problem (chunk caches, etc.) will be larger than the memory allocator inflection point and is simply being cached. I've always been under the impression that the OS typically discards those freed pages easily when other processes need the memory so you shouldn't be forced to go to the disk for swap space.

Hi Rodrigo,
Sounds like the automatic memory manager in HDF5 is not what you want / need.  You can force the memory to be freed early by calling H5garbage_collect()  (https://support.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/doc/RM/RM_H5.html#Library-GarbageCollect) or can disable the feature in the library you build by passing the —enable-using-memchecker flag to configure when you build the package.

Re: How to free memory after H5Fclose

Castro Rojo, Rodrigo
In reply to this post by Dana Robinson
Hi Dana,

Thank you very much for your proposal. The type of memory consume that you describe is an effect that we realised in some performance tests we designed for our archiving system. In these tests, we were able to reproduce this memory behaviour of the linux OS  with a simple “dd if=/dev/none of=file bs=4k count=1000000”, and as you perfectly describe, the OS tries to get as much amount of memory as is possible until a limit, but if a process requires it then the OS provides it to this process.

In the case that you have commented, I have made some tests and although the linux OS of the machine takes almost all the memory but this memory is not associated to the process that makes the file operations. Even if caches are cleaned, no change in memory consume of the process is produced. Also it is important to remark that the memory usage I need to free produces finally a critical failure in the process.


Regards,
Rodrigo

Re: How to free memory after H5Fclose

Castro Rojo, Rodrigo
In reply to this post by Quincey Koziol-3
Hi Quincey,

I have run several tests based on the solutions you propose and I couldn’t free the memory. Anyway let me share some interesting results. I am using 10.0.1-pre2.

1- Use of H5garbage_collect() after H5Fclose has no effect in memory usage of the file.

2- Build version of the library with "—enable-using-memchecker”, has no effect in memory consume in my example.

3- H5Pset_evict_on_evict has no effect

4- If every dataset is closed just after creating, the use of memory is much less (27MB) that if all datasets are created and then all of them are closed (600MB).

5- After writing data in all datasets, H5Fflush(fid,H5F_SCOPE_GLOBAL) has very different times depending on open close dataset strategy. For 40K datasets and 300 records to write per dataset:
a) Open and close every dataset when data is written: 7 seconds (including flush time) that is a latency very similar that I got in previous release. 
   b) Keep all datasets open and Write in all datasets and then flush with “H5Fflush(fid,H5F_SCOPE_GLOBAL)”: 95 seconds.

I hope this information could help.


Thank you very much.


Regards,
Rodrigo

Re: How to free memory after H5Fclose

Miller, Mark C.

Hi Rodrigo,

 

See some comments embedded below...

Hi Quincey,

 

I have run several tests based on the solutions you propose and I couldn’t free the memory. Anyway let me share some interesting results. I am using 10.0.1-pre2.

 

Are you doing chunked, compact or contiguous datasets. If chunked, a serious issue with that is that each chunked dataset is managed by a "chunk cache" and you might wanna have a look at H5Pset_chunk_cache to affect behavior of that.

 

1- Use of H5garbage_collect() after H5Fclose has no effect in memory usage of the file.

 

this will help *only* for closed objects. Garbage collect will have no effect on objects left open. Hence, one of your use cases of keeping all datasets open will not benefit from a call to H5garbage_collect().

 

2- Build version of the library with "—enable-using-memchecker”, has no effect in memory consume in my example.

 

3- H5Pset_evict_on_evict has no effect

 

Again, this should/will work *only* for closed objects.

 

4- If every dataset is closed just after creating, the use of memory is much less (27MB) that if all datasets are created and then all of them are closed (600MB).

 

This makes sense, each HDF5 object is managed by metadata. And, depending on the layout of datasets, even raw data for those objects may be managed in memory (e.g chunk cache).

 

5- After writing data in all datasets, H5Fflush(fid,H5F_SCOPE_GLOBAL) has very different times depending on open close dataset strategy. For 40K datasets and 300 records to write per dataset:

a) Open and close every dataset when data is written: 7 seconds (including flush time) that is a latency very similar that I got in previous release. 

   b) Keep all datasets open and Write in all datasets and then flush with “H5Fflush(fid,H5F_SCOPE_GLOBAL)”: 95 seconds.

 

I am not surprised by these results. I think best time and space performance of HDF5 is likely when you close objects as soon as practical.

 

As an aside, I wonder how things would be if you attempted some adjustments to the metadata cache algorithm via a call to H5Pset_mdc_config()...

 

https://support.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/doc/RM/RM_H5P.html#Property-SetMdcConfig

 

set_initial_size=1

initial_size=16384

min_size=8192

epoch_length=3000

lower_hr_threshold=1e-5

 

possibly adjust upwards initial_size and min_size to something that represents 2-5x whatever size '300 records is'. Again, I suspect this will help *only* for the open and close case.

 

If you try it, would be interested to know what you find.

 

I hope this information could help.

 

 

Thank you very much.

 

 

Regards,

Rodrigo

Hi Rodrigo,

Sounds like the automatic memory manager in HDF5 is not what you want / need.  You can force the memory to be freed early by calling H5garbage_collect()  (https://support.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/doc/RM/RM_H5.html#Library-GarbageCollect) or can disable the feature in the library you build by passing the—enable-using-memchecker flag to configure when you build the package.

Hi,

I am using HDF5 storage in SWMR mode. I am open files with huge number of datasets and then I close it but after H5Fclose the amount of memory reserved by the process is the same.

The same effect happens when data is written to a data set. All memory reserved by the process (for chunks, caches, etc) is not freed after file is closed (H5Fclose).

I have checked with valgrind but no memory leak is detected. It seams there is a free of memory before the process finishes but I need this free when file is closed.

Is possible to have memory free after H5Fclose without finishing the process?


A simplified example of my code follows the typical sequence:

———————————————————————————————
#include "hdf5.h"

#include <stdlib.h>

// Number of tables to create
#define NUM_DATASETS  10000

int main(void)

hid_t fid;
hid_t sid;
hid_t dcpl;
hid_t pdsets[NUM_DATASETS];
char dname[300];
    hsize_t dims[2] = {1, 0}; /* Dataset starting dimensions */
    hsize_t max_dims[2] = {1, H5S_UNLIMITED}; /* Dataset maximum dimensions */
hsize_t chunk_dims[2] = {1, CHUNK_SIZE}; /* Chunk dimensions */
int i;

printf("Creating file\n");

// Open file
fid = H5Fcreate("packet.h5", H5F_ACC_TRUNC | H5F_ACC_SWMR_WRITE, H5P_DEFAULT, H5P_DEFAULT);

// Create compound data type
hid_t datatype = H5Tcreate(H5T_COMPOUND, sizeof(data_t));
H5Tinsert(datatype, "Data", HOFFSET(data_t, data), H5T_NATIVE_DOUBLE);
H5Tinsert(datatype, "Timestamp", HOFFSET(data_t, timestamp), H5T_NATIVE_LLONG);

    /* Create dataspace for creating datasets */
    if((sid = H5Screate_simple(2, dims, max_dims)) < 0)
        return 1;

/* Create dataset creation property list */
    if((dcpl = H5Pcreate(H5P_DATASET_CREATE)) < 0)
        return -1;
    if(H5Pset_chunk(dcpl, 2, chunk_dims) < 0)
        return -1;

printf("Creating %d datasets\n", NUM_DATASETS);
// Create datasets
for (i = 0; i < NUM_DATASETS; i++) {
sprintf(dname,"dset_%d",i);
if((pdsets[i] = H5Dcreate2(fid, dname, datatype, sid, H5P_DEFAULT, dcpl, H5P_DEFAULT)) < 0)
            return 1;
if(H5Dclose(pdsets[i]) < 0)
            return -1;
}

printf("Closing everything\n");

if(H5Pclose(dcpl) < 0)

We have tested a lot of combination of this cache and at the beginning memory effect is better at the beginning but performance and memory problems persist in the case of: 
- “opening all datasets”
- N times (
* “write records” in all datasets
* “flush”
- “close all datasets”

I agree that not keeping open so many datasets will help.
  
 
1- Use of H5garbage_collect() after H5Fclose has no effect in memory usage of the file.

Yes. But also no it doesn’t work. Memory is mot freed.

Ok. Then we are going to keep this line. Anyway, the issue of freeing memory after closing everything (including file) it is very important for us, so if you have any clue don’t doubt tell us to try. 

Just comment that this huge latency in case b) it was not present in "hdf5-10.0.0-alpha1”.


 
As an aside, I wonder how things would be if you attempted some adjustments to the metadata cache algorithm via a call to H5Pset_mdc_config()...

I have 4 tests files to cover this case with very simple programs. What would be the best way to share them with the forum?
