Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4490) Map and Reduce tasks should run as the user who submitted the job
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2008 12:14:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4490?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12654392#action_12654392

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-4490:

Hemanth -you are right, for streaming/pipes stuff a second identity is needed. What some of
the grid toolkits have done in the past is have some low-privilege user for running work;
there isn't a 1:1 mapping of grid users to user accounts, instead the worker is allowed access
to the relevant files of a user for a while, then at the end of the job, that data goes away.
This eliminates some of the account management problems, though forces you to make sure that
the worker doesnt have access to any old/shared data on the same filesystem.

> Currently the TaskTracker spawns the map/reduce tasks, resulting in them running as the
user who started the TaskTracker.
> For security and accounting purposes the tasks should be run as the job-owner.
