Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3140) JobTracker should not try to promote a (map) task if it does not write to DFS at all
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2008 18:31:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3140?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12584711#action_12584711
] 

Amar Kamat commented on HADOOP-3140:
------------------------------------

Arun, Two things
1) If the status is replayed by the TaskTracker, the JobTracker will take care of that. The
{{JobTracker.heartbeat()}} will simply discard it there and then.
2) If at all the status gets replayed (in {{JobInProgress.updateTaskStatus()}}) it will be
taken care as follows
a) task t comes in as {{SUCCEEDED}} for a tip that is already completed.
b) It will be marked (locally) as {{KILLED}} and the tasks status will be updated in the JT.
c) If at all the status is resent, it will be marked locally as {{KILLED}}. Now the *change*
in the status will result in as _false_ and nothing will happen.
The reason for marking the task as {{KILLED}} (locally) is to make sure that the semantics
of the trunk is retained. If  the state is updated first and later marked as {{KILLED}} then
the task status will be temporarily marked as {{SUCCEEDED}}.

> In most cases, map tasks do not write to dfs.
> Thus, when they complete, they should not be put into commit_pending queue at all.
> This will improve the task promotion significantly.
