Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-2486) Dropping records at reducer. InMemoryFileSystem NPE.
Date Sat, 22 Dec 2007 06:40:43 GMT
Dropping records at reducer.  InMemoryFileSystem NPE.
-----------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-2486
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2486
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: mapred
    Affects Versions: 0.14.3
            Reporter: Koji Noguchi


Note: I'm really not sure if this is a bug in my code or in mapred. 

With my mapreduce job without combiner,  I sometimes see   # of total Map output records !=
# of total Reduce input records. What's weird to me is, when I rerun my code with exact same
input, usually I get an expected #map output recs == #reduce output recs.

Both jobs finish successfully. No failed tasks. No speculative execution. 

I ran separate linecount mapred jobs on both the input and the output to see if  the counters
are reporting the correct number. 


When I looked at all the 513 reducer counter, I found single reducer with different counts
for the two runs. 
Only error stood out in that  reducer userlog is,

Could this error be somehow related to my having different # of records?
