From José Luis Larroque <>

Could be a lot of different reasons. Memory problems, algorithm problems,

I recommend you to focus in reach the logs instead of guessing why the
worker's are dying. Maybe you are looking in the wrong place, maybe you can
access to them though web ui instead of command line.

>From terminal, doing yarn logs -applicationId "id" doing will be enough for
seeing them. If you want to access your phyisical files in your nodes, you
should go to all nodes and check everyone of them, and search for the
different containers of your application in the directory where those are.

Another link with help:

Maybe you could test the algorithm locally instead of running it on the
cluster, for a better understanding of the relation between yarn and Giraph.
