Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1471) FileOutputCommitter does not safely clean up it's temporary files
Date Tue, 09 Feb 2010 17:15:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1471?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12831546#action_12831546
] 

Arun C Murthy commented on MAPREDUCE-1471:
------------------------------------------

Jim, all file-based output-formats check to ensure that their output-directory is *not* present
when they start i.e. 'working_path' is owned by one and only one job, hence this behaviour
is correct.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1471
>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
>            Reporter: Jim Finnessy
>   Original Estimate: 4h
>  Remaining Estimate: 4h

> When the FileOutputCommitter cleans up during it's cleanupJob method, it potentially
deletes the temporary files of other concurrent jobs.
> Since all the temporary files for all concurrent jobs are written to working_path/_temporary/
any concurrent tasks that have the same working_path will remove all currently executing jobs
when it removes working_path/_temporary during job cleanup.
> If the file name output is guaranteed by the client application to be unique, the temporary
files/directories should also be guaranteed to be unique to avoid this problem. Suggest modifying
cleanupJob to only remove files that it created itself.
