Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5338) Reduce tasks are stuck waiting for map outputs when none are in progress
Date Wed, 04 Mar 2009 13:43:56 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5338?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12678732#action_12678732

Ramya R commented on HADOOP-5338:

Tested the above patch on a 500node cluster and the reducers are no longer stuck and the job
successfully completes after multiple JT restarts.
However, there is one thing to notice. The situation where "reducers wait for maps when none
are running" still occurs. But due to the above patch,this situation is handled in a way that
the reducers don't hang infinitely. Instead the TT pulls back all the events and completes
the task successfully.

tasks are in progress. The reduce tasks wait infinitely.
