Subject Tasks stuck in UNASSIGNED state - Hadoop 1.2.1
Date Mon, 09 Mar 2015 21:35:24 GMT
We have a hadoop 1.2.1 cluster running on EC2. The job tracker is an On 
Demand box while we task trackers are stop instances all being setup using 
an AMI. There are normally 100 instances running with about 1500 map and 
reduce slots. We run hundreds of hive queries everyday, there are no 
custom map-reduce jobs.

In the past few days, the queries are running slower than before. On 
investigation we found that the tasks are not starting even though there 
are free map and reduce slots. The cpu load on the task trackers is around 
50%, the load average is lower than the number of cores and the memory 
utilization is nowhere close to the available max. The tasks are getting 
stuck in UNASSIGNED state for a few minutes before they start or fail to 
launch and then start after a few minutes of timeout.

The jobtracker is running at around 20% CPU with 1GB out of 4GB XMX used.

This causes jobs to take longer to start and therefore finish.

Is there something we can do to debug and fix this issue?
