Subject RE: How to configure mapreduce archive size?
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2013 20:59:08 GMT
Hi Hemanth,

For the hadoop 1.0.3, I can only find "local.cache.size" in file core-default.xml, which is
in hadoop-core-1.0.3.jar. It is not in mapred-default.xml.

I updated the value in file default.xml and changed the value to 500000. This is just for
my testing purpose. However, the folder /tmp/hadoop-root/mapred/local/archive already goes
more than 1G now. Looks like it does not do the work. Could you advise if what I did is correct?

This directory is used as part of the 'DistributedCache' feature. (http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r1.0.4/mapred_tutorial.html#DistributedCache).
There is a configuration key "local.cache.size" which controls the amount of data stored under
DistributedCache. The default limit is 10GB. However, the files under this cannot be deleted
if they are being used. Also, some frameworks on Hadoop could be using DistributedCache transparently
to you.

So you could check what is being stored here and based on that lower the limit of the cache
size if you feel that will help. The property needs to be set in mapred-default.xml.

I am using hadoop which is packaged within hbase -0.94.1. It is hadoop 1.0.3. There is some
mapreduce job running on my server. After some time, I found that my folder /tmp/hadoop-root/mapred/local/archive
has 14G size.

How to configure this and limit the size? I do not want  to waste my space for archive.
