Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3124) DFS data node should not use hard coded 10 minutes as write timeout.
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2008 22:34:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3124?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12589264#action_12589264

dhruba borthakur commented on HADOOP-3124:

I think we should put in this patch for 0.17 and set the write timeout to a value lesser than
10 minutes. This means that the write will timeout before the entire task fails. The failed
write will be retried and the task will probably succeed.

>             Project: Hadoop Core
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: dfs
>    Affects Versions: 0.17.0
>            Reporter: Runping Qi
>            Assignee: Raghu Angadi
>             Fix For: 0.18.0
>         Attachments: HADOOP-3124.patch, HADOOP-3124.patch
> This problem happens in 0.17 trunk
> I saw reducers waited 10 minutes for writing data to dfs and got timeout.
> The client retries again and timeouted after another 19 minutes.
> After looking into the code, it seems that the dfs data node uses 10 minutes as timeout
for wtiting data into the data node pipeline.
> I thing we have three issues:
> 1. The 10 minutes timeout value is too big for writing a chunk of data (64K) through
the data node pipeline.
> 2. The timeout value should not be hard coded.
> 3. Different datanodes in a pipeline should use different timeout values for writing
to the downstream.
> A reasonable one maybe (20 secs * numOfDataNodesInTheDownStreamPipe).
> For example, if the replication factor is 3, the client uses 60 secs, the first data
node use 40 secs, the second datanode use 20secs.
