Subject Problem identifying cause of a failed job
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2010 22:50:17 GMT
Newbie alert.

I have a Pig script I tested on small data and am now running it on a larger
data set (85GB). My cluster is two machines right now, each with 16 cores
and 32G of ram. I configured Hadoop to have 15 tasktrackers on each of these
nodes. One of them is the namenode, one is the secondary name node. I¹m
using Pig 0.7.0 and Hadoop 0.20.2 with Java 1.6.0_18 on Linux Fedora Core
12, 64-bit.

My Pig job starts, and eventually a reduce task fails. I¹d like to find out
why. Here¹s what I know:

The webUI lists the failed reduce tasks and indicates this error:

java.io.IOException: Task process exit with nonzero status of 134.
    at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskRunner.run(TaskRunner.java:418)

The userlog userlogs/attempt_201011151350_0001_r_000063_0/stdout says this:

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007ff74158463c, pid=27109, tid=140699912791824
# JRE version: 6.0_18-b07
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (16.0-b13 mixed mode
linux-amd64 )
[thread 140699484784400 also had an error]# Problematic frame:

# V  [libjvm.so+0x62263c]
# An error report file with more information is saved as:
# If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit:
#   http://java.sun.com/webapps/bugreport/crash.jsp

My mapred-site.xml already includes this:


So I was hoping that the file hs_err_pid27109.log would exist but it
doesn¹t. I was sure to check the /tmp dir on both tasktrackers. In fact
there is no dir  




I¹d like to find the source of the segfault, can anyone point me in the
right direction? 

Of course let me know if you need more information!
