Subject [jira] [Resolved] (MAPREDUCE-1755) Zombie tasks kept alive by logging system
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2011 17:41:35 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1755?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Allen Wittenauer resolved MAPREDUCE-1755.
-----------------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

It is easier to just pkill -9 java tasks at regular intervals than fix this.

> I'm currently looking at a task that, as far as the task tracker is concerned, is dead.
 Like long long long ago dead.  It was a failed task that ran out of heap.  Rather than just
kill it, I thought I would see what it was doing, since it was clearly using system resources.
 It would appear the system is trying to log but failing.  I'm guessing we're missing an error
condition and not doing the appropriate thing. See the comments for more.
