Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5154) 4-way deadlock in FairShare scheduler
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2009 04:07:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5154?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12674884#action_12674884

Hemanth Yamijala commented on HADOOP-5154:

bq. The reason showJobs doesn't lock the JobTracker is because it only looks at information
in the fair scheduler.
Matei, we access {{JobTracker.runningJobs()}}. This is accessing the jobs data structure in
an unsynchronized manner. I see there's a {{JobTracker.getRunningJobs()}} which is providing
synchronized access. 

I also meant that the scheduler instance is not being locked when accessing APIs in the scheduler.
Is that not required as well ?

bq. How is it (refresh) handled on the JobTracker's web UI? For some reason I thought that
The JobTracker web page is not refreshed. The Job and task details web pages are, and I see
that the Job details web page does not synchronize access to the jobs data structure as well.
But that is still a bug. *smile*.
