Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2175) Blacklisted hosts may not be able to serve map outputs
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2008 14:19:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2175?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12576208#action_12576208

Runping Qi commented on HADOOP-2175:
------------------------------------


Re-executing the mappers will likely be the correct action in most cases.
Even for some cases where this is not optimal, its cost will not be that expensive.
Thus, I think that is the right behavior, before comebody comes up with a simple and effective
alternative

> After a node fails 4 mappers (tasks), it is added to blacklist thus it will no longer
accept tasks.
> But, it will continue serve the map outputs of any mappers that ran successfully there.

> However, the node may not be able serve the map outputs either. 
> This will cause the reducers to mark the corresponding map outputs as from slow hosts,

> but continue to try to get the map outputs from that node.
> This may lead to waiting forever.
