Subject runtime exceptions not killing job
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2008 22:14:47 GMT
I recently upgraded from Hadoop 0.14.1 to 0.16.1. Previously in 0.14.1, 
if a map or reduce task threw a runtime exception such as an NPE, the 
task, and ultimately the job, would fail in short order. I was running 
on job on my local 0.16.1 cluster today, and when the reduce tasks 
started throwing NPEs, the tasks just hung. Eventually they timed out 
and were killed, but is this expected behavior in 0.16.1? I'd prefer the 
job to fail quickly if NPEs are being thrown.
