Subject [jira] Updated: (MAPREDUCE-2371) TaskLogsTruncater does not need to check log ownership when running as Child
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2011 21:24:05 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2371?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Todd Lipcon updated MAPREDUCE-2371:

    Attachment: mapreduce-2371-on-0.20.txt

Here's a prelim patch for this (not cluster tested yet). It applies against an 0.20 security
branch, since MAPREDUCE-2178 isn't available for trunk yet.

>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 0.23.0
>            Reporter: Todd Lipcon
>            Assignee: Todd Lipcon
>             Fix For: 0.23.0
>         Attachments: mapreduce-2371-on-0.20.txt
> Before MAPREDUCE-2178, it used to be that the TaskLogsTruncater had to use the SecureIO
API to open the task logs before truncation, to avoid an attack where the user would symlink
in something that the TT had access to but not the user. After MAPREDUCE-2178, this truncation
is done as the user rather than as the TT, so we don't need to perform this check.
> Not performing the check avoids a fork() call which we've found to be troublesome since
it doubles vmem consumption and thus requires that users bump mapred.child.ulimit to >2x
the expected child heap size.
