Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1499) JobTracker.finalizeJob inverts lock order and causes potential deadlock
Date Thu, 25 Feb 2010 01:22:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1499?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12838131#action_12838131

Matei Zaharia commented on MAPREDUCE-1499:
------------------------------------------

The problem in MAPREDUCE-1436 only happened with a backport of the trunk fair scheduler to
0.20. It probably won't happen with the 0.20 fair scheduler. However, anyone packaging a distribution
that includes a backport of the fair scheduler should look into it. As I mentioned in MAPREDUCE-1436,
the fix (adding a lock around the TaskTrackerManager in update() is simple and is unlikely
to have a major impact on performance.

> This issue was brought up by Matei in MAPREDUCE-1436 as a fairsched bug, but it turns
out it's a JT bug even with the fifo scheduler in unpatched 0.20.2. JobTracker.finalizeJob
locks JT.jobs, JT.taskScheduler, etc, having gotten the JIP log before the JT lock.
