<indexterm audience="hidden">BUFFER_POOL_LIMIT query option</indexterm>
Defines a limit on the amount of memory that a query can allocate from the
internal buffer pool. The value for this limit applies to the memory on each host,
not the aggregate memory across the cluster. Typically not changed by users, except
during diagnosis of out-of-memory errors during queries.
<p conref="../shared/impala_common.xml#common/type_integer"/>
<!-- BUFFER_POOL_LIMIT: [0] -->
<p conref="../shared/impala_common.xml#common/default_blurb"/>
The default setting for this option is the lower of 80% of the
<codeph>MEM_LIMIT</codeph> setting, or the <codeph>MEM_LIMIT</codeph>
setting minus 100 MB.
<p conref="../shared/impala_common.xml#common/added_in_2100"/>
<p conref="../shared/impala_common.xml#common/usage_notes_blurb"/>
If queries encounter out-of-memory errors, consider decreasing the
<codeph>BUFFER_POOL_LIMIT</codeph> setting to less than 80% of the
<codeph>MEM_LIMIT setting</codeph>.
<p conref="../shared/impala_common.xml#common/example_blurb"/>
-- Set an absolute value.
set buffer_pool_limit=8GB;
-- Set a relative value based on the MEM_LIMIT setting.
set buffer_pool_limit=80%;
