Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6520) UGI should load tokens from the environment
Date Fri, 29 Jan 2010 07:41:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6520?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12806266#action_12806266
] 

Devaraj Das commented on HADOOP-6520:
-------------------------------------

This environment variable exists - JOB_TOKEN_FILE. In this jira, we should read the contents
of the file via TokenCache's APIs and load the tokens in the UGI (similar to the way job-token
is loaded in Child.java). In the JobInProgress, the tokens already exist in memory and it
should be easy to add it to the ugi used for copying the jobconf file from the hdfs. In the
tasktracker, ditto (for localizing the job's files).
For tasks (and for other processes like an MR Streaming app running a hdfs command from within
the tasks), if we have a static block in the UGI to look for the env variable, and load the
token cache using the TokenCache's APIs, it should work. Also, when the env var is defined,
we should use simple authentication for login.
Thoughts?

> For MapReduce tasks, we need not only the task itself, but child processes to get the
delegation tokens, therefore we need an environment variable that if set loads a token cache
into the login UGI. The task tracker can set this property so that tasks (and child processes
of the tasks, such as streaming and pipes) have the job's tokens automatically.
