Subject Re: Preventing/Limiting NotReplicatedYetException exceptions

Thanks the information, Alex.

I have mostly seen the NotReplicatedYetException issue with reduce
tasks. We disabled speculative execution for reduce tasks earlier this
evening so we'll see if there is an impact within the next day or so.

  Can anyone provide some insight as to what you would look for

  logs to troubleshoot this issue?

Up until the occurrences of the NotReplicatedYetException
exception, we
only have "java.io.IOException: Could not complete write to file"
referring to files that correspond to killed tasks (e.g.
launched due to speculative execution).

Is it map or reduce speculative execution?  Which file was it
writing to?  I noticed a few problems with reduce speculative
execution in the past (specifically, cleaning up).  can you try
to switch off reduce spec exectution off and see if the problem
goes away (set mapred.reduce.tasks.speculative.execution to

  Lastly, would it make sense to upgrade to the latest version
  of v0.20.1
  Cloudera Hadoop?

I would say yes: the latest release hadoop-0.20.2+320 is mostly
bug fixes, although I do not know anything specific for the
problem you are having

  Thanks in advance,


Alex K
