Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5473) Race condition in command-line kill for a task
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2009 06:53:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5473?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12688589#action_12688589

Amareshwari Sriramadasu commented on HADOOP-5473:

bq. 2. TT reports the task status as SUCCEEDED.
When TT reports task as SUCCEEDED, and there was user request to kill the task, 
1. we can accept the state as SUCCEEDED. and ignore user request to kill. (remove the request
from tasksToKill map and don't send a KillTaskAction). 
2. Dont accept the state as SUCCEEDED, mark it KILLED and send a KillTaskAction.

> The race condition occurs in following sequence of events:
> 1. User issues a command-line kill for a RUNNING map-task. JT stores the task in tasksToKill
> 2. TT reports the task status as SUCCEEDED.
> 3. JT creates a TaskCompletionEvent as SUCCEEDED. Also sends a killTaskAction.
> 4. Reducers fail fetching the map output.
> 5. finally, the task would fail with Fetch failures. After HADOOP-4759, the task is left
as FAILED_UNCLEAN task, since the task is present in tasksToKill mapping.
