Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-3517) The last InMemory merge may be missed
Date Mon, 09 Jun 2008 04:03:45 GMT
The last InMemory merge may be missed

                 Key: HADOOP-3517
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3517
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: mapred
    Affects Versions: 0.18.0
            Reporter: Devaraj Das
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 0.18.0

This is post HADOOP-3366. The inmem merge thread has the loop:
        while (!exitInMemMerge) {
The fetchOutputs, at the end of copying everything, does the following:
        exitInMemMerge = true; 
Now if the merge thread is doing a merge (inside the doInMemMerge method) when the exitInMemMerge
is set to true, the loop will break and the last merge of the files that got shuffled recently
will be skipped. ramManager.close(), that internally does a final notify to the merge thread
also won't have any effect in this case.
