Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-2027) fair share scheduler causes unnecessary preemption under some conditions
Date Tue, 24 Aug 2010 19:07:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2027?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12902020#action_12902020

Matei Zaharia commented on MAPREDUCE-2027:

Actually, looking at trunk, the issue seems to be there too. The methods you need to fix are
neededSpeculativeMaps and neededSpeculativeReduces in DefaultTaskSelector.

> When the cluster hits speculative cap - JobInProgress does not speculate any more. however
FairShare Scheduler continues to believe that tasks need to be speculated.
> Under such conditions, FS Scheduler will start preempting repeatedly (because from it's
perspective - certain jobs are not getting the slots they deserve (for speculative tasks)).
> There may be other reasons for excessive preemption as well - this one stood out clearly.
