Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2119) JobTracker becomes non-responsive if the task trackers finish task too fast
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2008 19:28:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2119?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12577569#action_12577569
] 

Amar Kamat commented on HADOOP-2119:
------------------------------------

True. My main concern there was fastening the reducers. Which as of now can be done by starting
the reducers early and speeding up the shuffling process. Maps takes ~1hr while shuffling
takes ~4hrs in the context of the benchmarks reported. Hence the reducers are hit more because
of the slow shuffling. Fixing the load logic will require detailed analysis whereas improving
the shuffling *might* not (parametric tweaks might make it better). Hence the load logic should
scale. 
bq. ... should be done as a separate Jira IMO
+1

> I ran a job with 0 reducer on a cluster with 390 nodes.
> The mappers ran very fast.
> The jobtracker lacks behind on committing completed mapper tasks.
> The number of running mappers displayed on web UI getting bigger and bigger.
> The jos tracker eventually stopped responding to web UI.
> No progress is reported afterwards.
> Job tracker is running on a separate node.
> The job tracker process consumed 100% cpu, with vm size 1.01g (reach the heap space limit).
