回复：Memory size for network buffers
The current calculation for network buffer size is "Math.min(taskmanager.network.memory.max, Math.max(taskmanager.network.memory.min, fraction * totalMem))".
Based on your below configuration, the result is just 32768 bytes (8 buffers) from taskmanager.network.memory.min.
If you want to config the fixed network buffers, you can set the same values for min and max parameters, ignore the fraction value in the configuration.
BTW, you can set the unit for these paramenters, such as min : 32kb.
As for the thoughts of min and max setting, it is difficult to exactly know how many network buffers are needed in TaskManager startup and which kinds of tasks would be deployed to run in this TaskManager later. For example, the batch jobs can make use of as many network buffers as system can spare. But for stream jobs, the spare buffers can be used for other places for possible improvements. In order to keep the possibility of future improments and not change the configuration setting, we retain these current parameters.
For you job I think you should increase the min value for more network buffers, the current 4 buffers are indeed not enough for common jobs.

主 题：Memory size for network buffers
I'm trying to understand the intention behind the size parameters for
network buffers, specifically max, min and fraction. The reason we are
looking at it is an attempt to make the memory allocation elastic, so that
memory is allocated according to the actual number of buffers required
(within a range), without the need to tune this for every deployment.
As of Flink 1.5, there are 3 parameters, but they all result in a fixed
allocation, which is not what we were looking for.
Here is an example just to illustrate it:
I wanted fraction to be out of the picture (but 0 isn't an acceptable
Then set min to something tiny that my job will exceed and max to something
too large to reach. Unfortunately, that fails:
java.io.IOException: Insufficient number of network buffers: required 8,
but only 0 available. The total number of network buffers is currently set
to 4 of 8192 bytes each. You can increase this number by setting the
configuration keys 'taskmanager.network.memory.fraction',
'taskmanager.network.memory.min', and 'taskmanager.network.memory.max'.
So the question then is, why have min and max? Or is the intention to have
a different implementation in the future?
