Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-5079) Recovery should restore task state from job history info directly
Date Mon, 18 Mar 2013 19:54:15 GMT
Jason Lowe created MAPREDUCE-5079:

             Summary: Recovery should restore task state from job history info directly
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-5079
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-5079
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: mr-am
    Affects Versions: 0.23.7
            Reporter: Jason Lowe
            Assignee: Jason Lowe

We've encountered a lot of hanging issues during MR-AM recovery because the state machines
don't always end up in the same states after recovery.  This is especially true when speculative
execution is enabled.  It should be straightforward to restore task and task attempt states
directly from the TaskInfo and TaskAttemptInfo records in the job history file to avoid relying
on the task state machines ending up in the proper states with the proper number of attempts.

This should be a more robust solution that would also give us the option of recovering start
time and log locations for tasks that were in-progress when the AM crashed.
