Subject dfs.datanode.max.xcievers property not used by job
Date Tue, 20 Apr 2010 14:40:18 GMT

Hi all,

I'm having some trouble with a MR job that outputs to several thousand files
using MultipleOutputs. I've increased the file handle limit to 65000. I've
set the dfs.datanode.max.xcievers property in hdfs-site.xml to 2047 as:


This property seems to be set properly because it appears in the job.xml job
file. But I'm still getting errors in the datanode logs that read:

java.io.IOException: xceiverCount 258 exceeds the limit of concurrent
xcievers 256

So it appears that the maximum number of xceivers is not being set properly
and the default value is being used.

I'm using Cloudera's Hadoop distribution. Hadoop version is 0.20.2.

I'd be grateful for any insight.

Many Thanks,
