Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1755) Zombie tasks kept alive by logging system
Date Wed, 05 May 2010 19:50:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1755?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12864469#action_12864469

Allen Wittenauer commented on MAPREDUCE-1755:

FWIW, all of the other zombie tasks appear to have the same loop.

It would be good if someone can confirm the same pattern on non-Solaris.  I have a suspicion
that the zombie tasks at Y! are showing the same behavio(u)r.

 Like long long long ago dead.  It was a failed task that ran out of heap.  Rather than just
kill it, I thought I would see what it was doing, since it was clearly using system resources.
 It would appear the system is trying to log but failing.  I'm guessing we're missing an error
condition and not doing the appropriate thing. See the comments for more.
