Subject [jira] Resolved: (MAPREDUCE-1781) option "-D mapred.tasktracker.map.tasks.maximum=1" does not work when no of mappers is bigger than no of nodes - always spawns 2 mapers/node

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1781?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Amareshwari Sriramadasu resolved MAPREDUCE-1781.

    Resolution: Invalid

bq. Regarding the initial problem, I think it would help a lot of people (especially new users)
to specify in the config page[ http://hadoop.apache.org/common/docs/current/mapred-default.html
] which parameters are set at startup and which at job runtime.
In branch 0.21, the configuration names are standardized through MAPREDUCE-849. The configuration
names with prefix as mapreduce.cluster/mapreduce.jobtracker/mapreduce.tasktracker are server
level configurations and need to be setup before the cluster is brought up. The other configurations
with prefix mapreduce.job/mapreduce.task/mapreduce.map/mapreduce.reduce are job level configurations.

Documenting all of them in mapred-default is being tracked in MAPREDUCE-1021.

Closing this as invalid.

>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: contrib/streaming
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.2
>         Environment: Debian Lenny x64, and Hadoop 0.20.2, 2GB RAM
>            Reporter: Tudor Vlad
> Hello
> I am a new user of Hadoop and I have some trouble using Hadoop Streaming and the "-D
mapred.tasktracker.map.tasks.maximum" option. 
> I'm experimenting with an unmanaged application (C++) which I want to run over several
nodes in 2 scenarios
> 1) the number of maps (input splits) is equal to the number of nodes
> 2) the number of maps is a multiple of the number of nodes (5, 10, 20, ...
> Initially, when running the tests in scenario 1 I would sometimes get 2 process/node
on half the nodes. However I fixed this by adding the optin "-D mapred.tasktracker.map.tasks.maximum=1",
so everything works fine.
> In the case of scenario 2 (more maps than nodes) this directive no longer works, always
obtaining 2 processes/node. I tested the even with putting maximum=5 and I still get 2 processes/node.
> The entire command I use is:
> /usr/bin/time --format="-duration:\t%e |\t-MFaults:\t%F |\t-ContxtSwitch:\t%w" \
>  /opt/hadoop/bin/hadoop jar /opt/hadoop/contrib/streaming/hadoop-0.20.2-streaming.jar
>  -D mapred.tasktracker.map.tasks.maximum=1 \
>  -D mapred.map.tasks=30 \
>  -D mapred.reduce.tasks=0 \
>  -D io.file.buffer.size=5242880 \
>  -libjars "/opt/hadoop/contrib/streaming/hadoop-7debug.jar" \
>  -input input/test \
>  -output out1 \
>  -mapper "/opt/jobdata/script_1k" \
>  -inputformat "me.MyInputFormat"
> Why is this happening and how can I make it work properly (i.e. be able to limit exactly
how many mappers I can have at 1 time per node)?
> Thank you in advance
