Subject Re: Oozie apparent concurrency deadlocking
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 15:31:04 GMT

Are you using the fairscheduler or default FIFO? This problem can be
partially alleviated by routing the MR actions and the Launcher jobs to
seperate queues/pools. The reason for this is if they are both competing
for the same resources you can run into a situation where all of the
available slots are taken up by the launcher actions and
thus permanent deadlock. I am guessing based on the numbers you threw out
there that your overall slot capacity is small (less than 10 mappers
total?) but if this isn't the case then something else is probably going on
as well. The way to specify it if you are looking to do it in a sqoop node
is below:

<action name="sqoop-node">
        <sqoop xmlns="uri:oozie:sqoop-action:0.2">
                <delete path="${NAME_NODE}/tmp/blah"/>

I have seen the oozie.service.CallableQueueService.callable.concurrency
property fix mentioned before as well but I thought that was only for
internalized Oozie nodes (e.g. forks/decisions/etc).

Hope this helps
