Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2116) Job.local.dir to be exposed to tasks
Date Tue, 22 Jan 2008 06:48:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2116?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12561229#action_12561229
] 

Amareshwari Sri Ramadasu commented on HADOOP-2116:
--------------------------------------------------

A clarification regarding distributed cache:
The current behavior of distributed cache is that the distributed cache is shared among the
jobs. The cache is localized under mapred/local/tasktracker/archive. i.e If two jobs want
to localize files with same name, they actually share them unless they have different file
timestamps.  Whenever a task releases cache, it decrements the reference count for the cache-id.
Cache is cleaned up only when the cache size exceeds the allowed lize (local.cache.size).
 
Is it the intended behavior, or should the cache be job specific? With the directory structure
that Owen has suggested, it seems like cache should be job specific.

> Currently, since all task cwds are created under a jobcache directory, users that need
a job-specific shared directory for use as scratch space, create ../work. This is hacky, and
will break when HADOOP-2115 is addressed. For such jobs, hadoop mapred should expose job.local.dir
via localized configuration.
