How did you set the mem_limit? Did you set via the impala-shell or while
starting the impalad daemon?
mem_limit is the memory limit in bytes for Impala Daemon. If reached,
queries running on the Impalad may be killed.

I've set the impala daemon memory limit through cloudera manager to 1 GiB

of resident memory with a virtual image of 7.7 gb. What does the mem_limit
configuration parameter mean and what does it do?
