Subject [jira] Created: (MAPREDUCE-1347) Missing synchronization in MultipleOutputFormat
Date Thu, 31 Dec 2009 00:31:29 GMT
Missing synchronization in MultipleOutputFormat
-----------------------------------------------

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-1347
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1347
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.20.2, 0.21.0, 0.22.0
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon


MultipleOutputFormat's RecordWriter implementation doesn't use synchronization when accessing
the recordWriters member. When using multithreaded mappers or reducers, this can result in
problems where two threads will both try to create the same file, causing AlreadyBeingCreatedException.
Doing this more fine-grained than just synchronizing the whole method is probably a good idea,
so that multithreaded mappers can actually achieve parallelism writing into separate output
streams.

>From what I can tell, the new API's MultipleOutputs seems not to have this issue.
