Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1521) Protection against incorrectly configured reduces
Date Mon, 22 Feb 2010 21:02:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1521?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12836902#action_12836902

Todd Lipcon commented on MAPREDUCE-1521:

This makes me just a little bit nervous - the case I'm worried about is when a job is working
fine in production and then starts failing at 3am some morning because the data volume increased
just a little bit over the threshold.

Could we default this behavior off and only turn it on for clusters where the operators prefer

>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 0.22.0
> We've seen a fair number of instances where naive users process huge data-sets (>10TB)
with badly mis-configured #reduces e.g. 1 reduce.
> This is a significant problem on large clusters since it takes each attempt of the reduce
a long time to shuffle and then run into problems such as local disk-space etc. Then it takes
4 such attempts.
> Proposal: Come up with heuristics/configs to fail such jobs early. 
> Thoughts?
