Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-896) Users can set non-writable permissions on temporary files for TT and can abuse disk usage.
Date Tue, 08 Dec 2009 11:01:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-896?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12787407#action_12787407

Hemanth Yamijala commented on MAPREDUCE-896:

This is getting close. I have a few minor comments:

- get_task_dir_path does not use mapred_local_dir. It can be removed.
- We should also be calling check_tt_root before we start the operation of cleanup.
- Documentation of PathDeletionContext and its subclasses would be nice. You can also document
methods like enablePathForDeletion.
- TaskTracker.localFs can be private and given by an accessor instead of being package private
and exposed.
- buildPathDeletionContexts and buildTaskControllerPathDeletionContexts can be private.
- buildPathDeletionContexts is checking for paths being null in one place, but not everywhere.
For e.g. for (Path p : paths) will throw an NPE if paths is null. I think it is not expected
to be null, no ? In which case, we shouldn't be checking for it.
- I would suggest instead of sending multiple parameters related to Task to TaskControllerPathDeletionContext,
we can send the Task itself. Also, I would suggest using JobID instead of the value as string.

Other than these, the other changes I verified seem fine.

>    Affects Versions: 0.21.0
>            Reporter: Vinod K V

> As of now, irrespective of the TaskController in use, TT itself does a full delete on
local files created by itself or job tasks. This step, depending upon TT's umask and the permissions
set by files by the user, for e.g in job-work/task-work or child.tmp directories, may or may
not go through successful completion fully. Thus is left an opportunity for abusing disk space
usage either accidentally or intentionally by TT/users.
