Subject [jira] Resolved: (HADOOP-406) Tasks launched by tasktracker in separate JVM can't generate log output
Date Thu, 24 May 2007 06:37:16 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-406?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Owen O'Malley resolved HADOOP-406.

    Resolution: Duplicate
      Assignee:     (was: Owen O'Malley)

This was resolved by giving the child jvm a special logger that captures it as part of the
job and provides it via http.

> Child JVM's don't have access to logging config system properties. When the child JVM
gets launched, it doesn't inherit the Java system properties hadoop.log.dir and hadoop.log.file
(which are actually based on the Bash environment variables $HADOOP_LOG_DIR and $HADOOP_LOGFILE).
This means that you get no log messages from the actual map/reduce tasks that are executing.

> Hi Hadoop developers,
> I'm confused about the way logging works within map or reduce tasks.
> Since tasks are launched in a new JVM  the java system properties "hadoop.log.dir" and
"hadoop.log.file" are not passed to the new JVM.
> This prevents the child process from logging properly. In fact you get:

> We see several ways to solve this problem. First retrieve the properties "hadoop.log.dir"
and "hadoop.log.file" from the mother JVM and then pass them to the child JVM as within the
args parameter.
> Second would be to  access the environment variables "$HADOOP_LOG_DIR" and "$HADOOP_LOGFILE"
using System.getEnv (java 1.5).
> Third there would be a more general solution. Taskrunner would resolve any environment
variables it found in "mapred.child.java.opts" by lookup the value using System.getEnv().
> Eg:
> unix:
> export MAX_MEMORY = 200
> hadoop-site.xml:
> <name>mapred.child.java.opts</name>
> <value>-Xmx${MAX_MEMORY}</value>
