Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-133) the TaskTracker.Child.ping thread calls exit

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-133:
--------------------------------------

The results are interesting. Based on a 45 minute run (on 195 linux nodes) of my random writer,
I got:

226 instaces of exit == 143
11 instances of exit == -113
  2 instances of exit == 65   // exception thrown on the ping
  0 instances of exit == 66  // task tracker not recognizing the task

So there is a lot of dying going on that I don't understand. Tomorrow, I'll make a patch for
my code that  changes ping from "void ping(string)" to "boolean ping(string)" where false
means that the task is unknown and exceptions get a second chance. Do you happen to recognize
either 143 or -113? Doing a quick search in eclipse, I didn't see them.

Calling exit in a mutli-threaded program is really problematic. In particular, it prevents
cleanup/finally clauses from running. We need to move to a model where it uses Thread.interrupt(),
which means we need to check the interrupt flag in place in the map loop and reduce loop and
stop masking the InterruptExceptions.
