Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4218) JobTracker may need to close its filesystem when being terminated
Date Mon, 22 Sep 2008 13:02:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4218?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12633244#action_12633244

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-4218:

both these failures are triggered by the same event; inside launchJobAndTestCounters the jobtracker
gets terminated; if this is set to shut down the filesystem client then the RPC proxy gets

  public synchronized void close() throws IOException {
    clientRunning = false;

    // close connections to the namenode
 and there, apparently goes filesystem access to that namenode, across the entire JVM. Which
seems a bit of overkill.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: mapred
>    Affects Versions: 0.19.0
>            Reporter: Steve Loughran
>            Priority: Minor
> This is something I've been experimenting with HADOOP-3268; I'm not sure what the right
action is here.
> -currently, the JobTracker does not close() its filesystem when it is shut down. This
will cause it to leak filesystem references if JobTrackers are started and stopped in the
same process.
> -The TestMRServerPorts test explicitly closes the filesystem
>         jt.fs.close();
>         jt.stopTracker();
> -If you move the close() operation into the stopTracker()/terminate logic, the filesystem
gets cleaned up, but 
> TestRackAwareTaskPlacement and TestMultipleLevelCaching fail with a FilesystemClosed
error (stack traces to follow)
> Should the JobTracker close its filesystem whenever it is terminated? If so, there are
some tests that need to be reworked slightly to not expect the fileystem to be live after
the jobtracker is taken down.
