Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1436) Deadlock in preemption code in fair scheduler
Date Tue, 02 Feb 2010 23:04:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1436?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12828821#action_12828821

Matei Zaharia commented on MAPREDUCE-1436:

The patch contains no unit tests because it's a bug fix for a deadlock. The unit test failure
is unrelated, as it is in streaming.

> In testing the fair scheduler with preemption, I found a deadlock between updatePreemptionVariables
and some code in the JobTracker. This was found while testing a backport of the fair scheduler
to Hadoop 0.20, but it looks like it could also happen in trunk and 0.21. Details are in a
comment below.
