Subject Re: JobTracker memory usage peaks once a day and OOM sometimes
Date Tue, 08 Feb 2011 20:56:27 GMT
As Allen mentioned it's really hard for anyone here to help you with  
CDH. You'll have to ask their user lists.

OTOH, there are significant enhancements we've done to the JobTracker  
in 0.21 and 0.22... the problem is that there isn't an Apache release  

the JT we run at Y! has a *huge* number of fixes for memory and  
performance (>100% improvement) which we've started putting into a  
0.20.100 branch - you might be interested in using that if you want a  
packaged release: http://people.apache.org/~acmurthy/hadoop-0.20.100-rc0/
