Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4714) map tasks timing out during merge phase
Date Mon, 24 Nov 2008 18:11:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4714?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12650260#action_12650260

Christian Kunz commented on HADOOP-4714:
----------------------------------------

io.sort.mb=500
Avg size of record is 276 B. There are some bad outlayers of up to 3 MB, but their frequency
is too small to be the reason for failure of reorting progress.

I checked the full syslog of one of the tasks. The last merge started exactly 20 minutes (the
configured timeout) before the time of failure, i.e. there was no progress reported at all.
I am not familiar with progress reporting, but does progress() in writeFile() just set a flag
with maybe no consequences?
When checking the log of a successful task I noticed that the final merge lasted longer than
20 minutes, i.e. this task reported progress, but from the TaskTracker log there was no progress
reported for 18 minutes into the merge phase (before it was every few seconds), i.e. with
a default timeout of 10 minutes this task attempt would have failed as well.

report progress enough.
> We see a lot of task failures during the merge phase, most of them timing out (even with
a 20 min timeout)
