Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1119) When tasks fail to report status, show tasks's stack dump before killing
Date Sat, 07 Nov 2009 01:39:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1119?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12774531#action_12774531

Todd Lipcon commented on MAPREDUCE-1119:

- I'd prefer SIGQUIT_TASK_JVM rather than QUIT_TASK_JVM for clarity's sake. It's a little
less consistent, but more obvious for people reading the code later on.
- in destroyTaskJVM, you sleep for sleeptimeBeforeSigkill in between the SIGQUIT and the SIGKILL.
This seems wrong - it should probably be a different timeout.
- ProcessTree.java: move SIGQUIT constant to top of class
- ProcessTree.java: some whitespace indentation seems wrong for sigQuitProcess
- Can we refactor some of the various signal-sending code in ProcessTree to share common code?
Lots of very similar methods.
- This currently causes stack traces for *all* killed tasks, right? I don't personally have
a problem with that, but the description of the JIRA indicates that only those due to failing
to report status will dump their stack, and it's worth noting the difference.
- LinuxTaskController.finishTask is now sort of a misnomer, since you're using it to send
SIGQUIT. Maybe rename to sendKillSignal or something?

> When the TT kills tasks that haven't reported status, it should somehow gather a stack
dump for the task. This could be done either by sending a SIGQUIT (so the dump ends up in
stdout) or perhaps something like JDI to gather the stack directly from Java. This may be
somewhat tricky since the child may be running as another user (so the SIGQUIT would have
to go through LinuxTaskController). This feature would make debugging these kinds of failures
much easier, especially if we could somehow get it into the TaskDiagnostic message
