Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1881) Improve TaskTrackerInstrumentation
Date Mon, 02 Aug 2010 17:06:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1881?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12894602#action_12894602
] 

Luke Lu commented on MAPREDUCE-1881:
------------------------------------

The main point of having an instrumentation class is to hide the implementation details behind
the instrumentation interface. Using for loops in the instrumentation client code is really
jarring. I'd recommend implementing a composite instrumentation class, if you want send events
to multiple instrumentation implementations. That way client code is not changed and you can
implement more advanced logic (like only send events to a subset of instrumentation objects
based on some rules.) without changing client code.

> The TaskTrackerInstrumentation class provides a useful way to capture key events at the
TaskTracker for use in various reporting tools, but it is currently rather limited, because
only one TaskTrackerInstrumentation can be added to a given TaskTracker and this objects receives
minimal information about tasks (only their IDs). I propose enhancing the functionality through
two changes:
> # Support a comma-separated list of TaskTrackerInstrumentation classes rather than just
a single one in the JobConf, and report events to all of them.
> # Make the reportTaskLaunch and reportTaskEnd methods in TaskTrackerInstrumentation receive
a reference to a whole Task object rather than just its TaskAttemptID. It might also be useful
to make the latter receive the task's final state, i.e. failed, killed, or successful.
> I'm just posting this here to get a sense of whether this is a good idea. If people think
it's okay, I will make a patch against trunk that implements these changes.
