Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1612) listing of an output directory shortly after job completion fails
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2007 05:31:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1612?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12516620
] 

Christian Kunz commented on HADOOP-1612:
----------------------------------------

I checked the logs of about 150 applications run with the July-25 nightly build which incorporates
HADOOP-1576, and also ignoring _${taskid} subdirectories in the output directory:

Outcome:

1) no loss of files (looks like this was fixed by HADOOP-1576, thank you ***)
2) no movement of undesired files

but:

3) listDirectory of output directory still occasionally fails up to 10 seconds after job completion
(maybe a DFS issue?)
4) _${taskid} subdirectories not completely cleaned up even days after job completion.

I think the issue should be reopened but not as a blocker.

> Sometimes, after a job finishes, and another application wants to rename dfs files created
by that job, listing of the output directory containing the newly created files fails. File
creation and directory listing is done via libhdfs, but it is unlikely that this makes any
difference, therefore, I add this to the mapred component.
> It might be a race condition: does the job complete before the files in the output directory
are promoted?
