Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2141) speculative execution start up condition based on completion time
Date Mon, 27 Apr 2009 18:26:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2141?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12703273#action_12703273
] 

Devaraj Das commented on HADOOP-2141:
-------------------------------------

I forgot to mention one point earlier. TTs that didn't get a chance to run virgin tasks of
a job earlier (maybe because the #tasks were fewer than the number of nodes in the cluster)
should be able to run speculative tasks of the same job (if any). In the current patch it
seems like this won't happen.

> We had one job with speculative execution hang.
> 4 reduce tasks were stuck with 95% completion because of a bad disk. 
> Devaraj pointed out 
> bq . One of the conditions that must be met for launching a speculative instance of a
task is that it must be at least 20% behind the average progress, and this is not true here.
> It would be nice if speculative execution also starts up when tasks stop making progress.
> Devaraj suggested 
> bq. Maybe, we should introduce a condition for average completion time for tasks in the
speculative execution check.
