Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-2389) Spurious EOFExceptions reading SpillRecord index files
Date Wed, 04 May 2011 20:32:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2389?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13028941#comment-13028941

John Novatnack commented on MAPREDUCE-2389:

Todd: Thanks we will try that.  Most of the time it seems to just be causing occasional task
failure, but we have also seen the exception happen on a handful of slaves simultaneously
and eventually push the jobtracker to run out of heap.  Right now our heap is 1gb for the
jobtracker with 90 slaves so we'll try increasing it and see if the problem persists with
that and the older version of Jetty.

EOFException reading the SpillRecord index file. After lots of investigation, including systemtap,
it looks like the read() syscall is actually returning a premature "0" result for no reason,
so this is likely a kernel or filesystem bug which is exacerbated by some workload the TT
