Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5394) JobTracker might schedule 2 attempts of the same task with the same attempt id across restarts
Date Tue, 17 Mar 2009 12:30:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5394?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12682658#action_12682658

Devaraj Das commented on HADOOP-5394:

Some comments:
1) The file jobtracker.info (the restart count file) must always exist in the system directory,
and the value in the file should be 0 (indicating the JT has started fresh). RecoveryManager.getRestartCount
should be changed accordingly. The update to the info file should be like:
   if (infoFile.exists()) {
       delete (infoFile.recovery);
   } else {
       rename (infoFile.recovery, infoFile);
   count = readInfoFile();
   write (count + 1) to infoFile.recover;
   delete infoFile;
   rename (infoFile.recover infoFile);

2) Add checks for info file in the testcase.
3) The restart count need not be logged in the JobHistory file.

> This can happen when the jobtracker gets restarted more than once. In such cases, the
jobtracker depends on the jobhistory file for the next restart count. If the new restart-count
is not flushed to the file then there is a fair chance that upon next restart, the jobtracker
might schedule a new attempt with an existing id. This can cause problems not only with the
side-effect files but also can cause the jobtracker to be in an inconsistent state.
