Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3236) Reduce task failed at shuffling time, throwing null pointer exception
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2008 19:38:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3236?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12588089#action_12588089
] 

Devaraj Das commented on HADOOP-3236:
-------------------------------------

Actually, whenever there is an error in the merge, the InMemoryFileSystem is left in a state
where other threads using the InMemoryFileSystem would encounter NPEs. This needs to be fixed.
But it's not a correctness issue since if there is a merge exception the task will die for
sure.

So yes the NPEs are due to the other merge exceptions as you pointed out. But I am not sure
why so many reducers are seeing corrupted map outputs.
