Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-507) Large amount of ranges can prevent job from kicking off
Date Fri, 19 Apr 2013 20:07:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-507?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13636820#comment-13636820

Billie Rinaldi commented on ACCUMULO-507:
-----------------------------------------

I was wondering about that.  The job submit directory is an example of such a temporary directory,
but that wouldn't be created until after the user has called setRanges and submitted the job.

Maybe I should revisit deleting the ranges from the job configuration when getSplits is called,
after the ranges are read.  Is there ever a case where a job would be submitted more than
once?  If so, this change would cause a failure on the second submit.

> We use the various ranges a user provides to create splits. Those get read when the job
is submitted by the client. On the client side, those ranges are used to get all of the splits,
and then the job is started. If the configuration is too large, the job will fail to submit
(this size is configurable, but that's besides the point). We should look into clearing the
ranges out of the jobconf if it's large to prevent this error, since at this point the ranges
are no longer needed in the configuration.
