Bug fixes

Tips

Let's learn a weekly tip from Databend.

How to eliminate OOM at build time

Databend has a large crate to manage and implement most of the functions. This means that the following error may be reported at build time:

(signal: 9, SIGKILL: kill) warning: build failed, waiting for other jobs to finish... error: build failed.

We observed that this phenomenon is mainly due to memory overflow during linking. This should be a problem that many giant rust projects may have to face, so let's see how to solve it.

  1. Use a better linker. Modern linkers like mold, which in addition to being faster, are also more memory friendly, can reduce this problem to some extent.
  2. Enable the newer symbol mangling scheme. In the latest nightly Rust, this means that -C symbol-manging-version=v0. It generates smaller symbols, and we observe a great memory reduction.
  3. Consider allocate more virtual memory. Of course, this is definitely a valid approach, but it may require adding another dozen GiB.
