Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4998) Implement a native OS runtime for Hadoop
Date Fri, 09 Jan 2009 04:54:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4998?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12662243#action_12662243

Vinod K V commented on HADOOP-4998:


Of late, there have been many instances in which Mapred, particualrly the TT side, started
to depend on platform specific features. I guess the handling of these can be made much easier
with such a native runtime. Some of them I can immediately think of are memory management
of tasks by TT(HADOOP-3581), starting tasks via job control(HADOOP-2721), starting tasks as
the job submitting user(HADOOP-4490). But I am not very sure as to which of these and how
much of it can be helped by a native runtime.

> It would be useful to implement a JNI-based runtime for Hadoop to get access to the native
OS runtime. This would allow us to stop relying on exec'ing bash to get access to information
such as user-groups, process limits etc. and for features such as chown/chgrp (org.apache.hadoop.util.Shell).
