Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-2208) Reduce frequency of Counter updates in the task tracker status
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2007 10:57:43 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2208?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Arun C Murthy updated HADOOP-2208:

    Status: Open  (was: Patch Available)

I see a potential bug with this patch: the TaskTracker _caches_ counters sent by the child-task
till it's sent out to the JobTracker via the heartbeat. Hence, we need to *merge* the ones
received from the child in {{TaskStatus.statusUpdate}}, not just over-write them as-is today.

Minor nit: the merge of the counters probably belongs to {{TaskInProgress.recomputeProgress}}
rather than {{TaskInProgress.updateStatus}} ...

> Currently,  We have counter updates from task tracker to job tracker on every heartbeat.
Both counter name and the values are updated for every heartbeat. This can be improved by
sending names and values for the first time and only the values after that.
> The frequency can be reduced by doing update only when the counters got changed.
