Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-639) task cleanup messages can get lost, causing task trackers to keep tasks forever
Date Mon, 04 Dec 2006 18:34:25 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-639?page=comments#action_12455383 ] 
Mahadev konar commented on HADOOP-639:

Arun, I meant ... the following:

The jobtracker should send the following two messages:

1) KILL_TASK-- which is per task message... and this one kills any task and cleans it up

2) THe other one I mentioned is the one when the JobTracker decides that a job has finished/failed
and wants all the tasktrackers to cleanup. In this case we could just send a jobid and cleanup
message from the Jobtracker to tasktracker since we have a mapping of jobID --> TIP_EXECUTED_OR_RUNNING
on a tasktracker. So we do not need to send cleanup messages for all tasks at the end of job

It is the second one that I was talking about in my previous comments.

> 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.
