Subject Re: fail and kill all tasks without killing job.
Date Sat, 21 Jul 2012 03:38:09 GMT
Hi Jay,

Fail a single task four times (default), and the job will be marked as
failed. Is that what you're looking for?

Or if you wanted your job to have succeeded even if not all tasks
succeeded, tweak the "mapred.max.map/reduce.failures.percent" property
in your job (by default it expects 0% failures, so set a number
between 0-1 that is acceptable for you).

To then avoid having to do it four times for a single task, lower
"mapred.map/reduce.max.attempts" down from its default of 4.

Does this answer your question?
