Subject [jira] [Updated] (MAPREDUCE-3721) Race in shuffle can cause it to hang
Date Wed, 25 Jan 2012 22:42:41 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-3721?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Siddharth Seth updated MAPREDUCE-3721:

    Attachment: MR-3721.txt

Patch adds another variable - commitMemory (Fetch complete size). A merge is triggered only
if this size exceeds mergeThreshold. Added a check to ensure mergeThreshold is greater than
the maxSingleShuffleLimit.
Earlier - usedMemory (reserved) was used for this computation - which meant a single  segment
way below mergeThreshold could lead to a merge to disk.

Have run several gridmix runs with the patch applied - without a hang. Not including a unit
test - writing one would likely change way more in the shuffle code to be able to recreate
the scenario.

> If all current {{Fetcher}}s complete while an in-memory merge is in progress - shuffle
could hang. 
> Specifically - if the memory freed by an in-memory merge does not bring {{MergeManager.usedMemory}}
below {{MergeManager.memoryLimit}} and all current Fetchers complete before the in-memory
merge completes, another in-memory merge will not be triggered - and shuffle will hang. (All
new fetchers are asked to WAIT).
