Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-639) task cleanup messages can get lost, causing task trackers to keep tasks forever
Date Wed, 29 Nov 2006 19:11:22 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-639?page=comments#action_12454414 ] 
Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-639:

The new protocol method signature is inconsistent:

public HeartbeatResponse updateStatus(TaskTrackerStatus status, boolean);

Everyone refers to this as the heartbeat, why not still call it that?

public HeartBeatResponse heartbeat(TaskTrackerStatus status, boolean);

Either that, or completely remove 'heartbeat' from our vocabulary.  Personally, I prefer using
heartbeat consistently for this, but I wouldn't reject this patch over that.  I feel more
strongly however that the naming should be consistent.  We shouldn't call it a heartbeat response
unless it's a response to something we call a heartbeat.

> If the pollForTaskWithClosedJob call from a job tracker to a task tracker times out when
a job completes, the tasks are never cleaned up. This can cause the mini m/r cluster to hang
on shutdown, but also is a resource leak.
