Subject Review Request: MAPREDUCE-2489 Jobsplits with random hostnames can make the queue unusable

Review request for hadoop-mapreduce.


We saw an issue where a custom InputSplit was returning invalid hostnames (non-repeating)
for the splits that were then causing the JobTracker to attempt to excessively resolve host
names. This caused a major slowdown for the JobTracker. We should prevent invalid InputSplit
hostnames from affecting everyone else.

I propose we implement some verification for the hostnames to try to ensure that we only do
DNS lookups on valid hostnames (and fail otherwise). We could also fail the job after a certain
number of failures in the resolve.

NOTE: This requires the changes in HADOOP-7314

This addresses bug MAPREDUCE-2489.
