Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-2862) Infinite loop in CombineFileInputFormat#getMoreSplits(), with missing blocks

Kazuki Ohta commented on MAPREDUCE-2862:

Would be some options...

* cause an error
* add option to ignore these errors (log missing blocks in Warning level)

> Hi, we met the infinite loop on CombineFileInputFormat#getMoreSplits().
> At first, we lost some blocks by mis-operation :-(. Then, one job tried to use these
missing blocks. At that time getMoreSplits() goes into the infinite loop.
> From our investigation, this List could be an empty array.
> > https://github.com/apache/hadoop-mapreduce/blob/trunk/src/java/org/apache/hadoop/mapreduce/lib/input/CombineFileInputFormat.java#L363
> Then 'for' loop just after that line does nothing, and entry is not removed from 'blockToNodes'.
> Finally this line goes into the infinite loop.

> We're now creating the patch against this problem...
