Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-2181) mapreduce.jobtracker.staging.root.dir default is unreasonable
Date Wed, 10 Nov 2010 02:08:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2181?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12930438#action_12930438

Allen Wittenauer commented on MAPREDUCE-2181:

Why would staging be 777?  IIRC, it should be owned and is only written to by the user that
the JT runs as.

>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: job submission, jobtracker

>            Reporter: Todd Lipcon
> The default for mapreduce.jobtracker.staging.root.dir is set to ${hadoop.tmp.dir}/mapred/staging,
which doesn't really work on a normal cluster. hadoop.tmp.dir is overloaded in different places
where sometimes it is a local path and sometimes it is a path on HDFS, which makes things
even more confusing.
> We should change the default for the staging directory to /user (as is suggested by the
description of that configuration) and then fix LocalJobRunner to use a different configuration
-- perhaps mapreduce.localjobrunner.staging.root.dir -- to make it clear that it's a *local*
path. That one could legitimately default to something inside hadoop.tmp.dir.
