John George commented on HDFS-2081:
-----------------------------------

I overlooked the changes in the patch in HADOOP-7082. That patch is exactly what is required!
Thanks Tod.

Duplicating this JIRA to HADOOP-7082.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.23.0
>         Environment: MR-279 branch. This is specific to yarn since yarn tries to write
the configuration file to hdfs while holding the lock of the configuration file.

> While trying to run yarn with 1024 block size, it looks as though the dfsclients are
hung waiting to write to DN. The reason is because yarn holds the configuration file lock
and tries to write to hdfs which in turn tries to read from the configuration which requires
the same lock.
> The temporary fix is to make sure that dfsclient threads dont read the config in its
write path. There might be better long term solutions like read/write locks and this needs
to be investigated in another JIRA.
