Subject [jira] [Updated] (MAPREDUCE-2804) "Creation of symlink to attempt log dir failed." message is not useful
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2011 07:11:35 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2804?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Owen O'Malley updated MAPREDUCE-2804:

    Attachment: mr-2804.patch

Fundamentally, there were two problems:

1. The logging message was less than useful.
2. There is a race condition when java's primitives are used to change permissions on a file.

This patch fixes the log messages to be much clearer about what is going wrong and removes
the extra chmod of the job directory. It was that chmod that was causing the creation of the
symlinks of a different task to fail when they were launching at the same time.

> In attempting to qualify the 204 RC2 release, my tasktracker logs are filled with the
above message.  I'd love to do something about it, but since it doesn't tell me what exactly
it is trying to symlink I cannot unless I dig into the source code.
