Subject Re: Giraph Job "Task attempt_* failed to report status" Problem
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2012 16:33:15 GMT
After several supersteps, sometimes a worker thread dies (say it ran out of
memory). Zookeeper waits for ~5 mins (600 seconds) and then decides that
the worker is not responsive and fails the entire job. At this point if you
have a checkpoint saved it will resume from there otherwise you have to
start from scratch.

If you run the job again it should successfully finish (or it might error
at some other superstep / worker combination).
