Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1227) Allow JobTracker to pause task scheduling
Date Sat, 21 Nov 2009 02:19:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1227?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12780890#action_12780890

Arun C Murthy commented on MAPREDUCE-1227:
------------------------------------------

bq. Doing it on a scheduler level sounds like a good idea, but the killing of the currently
running tasks should be there too.

I think we agree, should I close this as 'WONTFIX' ?

> We want to have an ability to pause task scheduling in JobTracker.
> The idea is: make job tracker still accept new jobs, but delay their running and do not
schedule any new tasks from the currently running jobs.
> It will help for example restarting the DFS cluster without affecting jobs: pause execution,
restart the DFS, running tasks will fail, but will not be scheduled until the execution is
resumed, so the job does not fail.
> In general it should help fix non MR problems (DFS, network, etc.) while not failing
running jobs and keep accepting new ones.
> What do people think of the general idea?
