Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3748) Flag to make tasks to send counter information only at the end of the task
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2008 17:08:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3748?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12626650#action_12626650

Runping Qi commented on HADOOP-3748:
------------------------------------


I think we need to be more pragmatic about performance related contributions.
I think any improvement is worth to consider. It is reasonable that we  weight performance
improvement brought in by a patch against the additional code complexity it introduces.
However, it is too strong to state that such a patch will not be committed unless it brought
significant performance gain.
BTW, how do you characterize significant performance gain?

> Currently counters are streaming from the task to the jobtracker as the task progresses.
If the number of counters is large this has a significant impact on the network traffic as
well as in the JobTracker load.
> The should be a flag, for example by counter-group, that indicates that the counters
are to be reported at the end of the task. By default this flag should be set to false for
all counter-groups maintaining the current behavior.
