Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-1018) Single lost heartbeat leads to a "Lost task tracker"

Single lost heartbeat leads to a "Lost task tracker"

                 Key: HADOOP-1018
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1018
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.10.0, 0.11.2, 0.12.0
         Environment: Nutch trunk/ (Hadoop 0.10.0), Linux, JDK 1.5, a cluster of 9 machines.
            Reporter: Andrzej Bialecki 

Under heavy load, task tracker may lose the heartbeat response from the JobTracker. Task tracker
tries to resend the last heartbeat message, which job tracker treats as "duplicate" response
and ignores. Since task tracker tries to resend the same heartbeat message, with the same
id, over and over again, no "valid" messages reach the job tracker, so after a while it considers
the task tracker to be lost. Task tracker cannot recover from this state and needs to be restarted.

Looking at Hadoop trunk/ I believe this problem still may occur - in JobTracker.java.heartbeat():992
JobTracker should not ignore duplicate messages but acknowledge them without processing. This
would cause the task tracker to sync back it's last heartbeat id with the last hearbeat id
remembered in the job tracker.
