Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-4058) adjustable task priority
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2012 08:59:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4058?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13238211#comment-13238211

Steve Loughran commented on MAPREDUCE-4058:
-------------------------------------------

seems a reasonable patch as there's no obvious cost to running the TT at a higher level than
tasks. Running the DN at a higher level could give it priority over the tasks, which may hurt
their throughput when the DN was under heavy external load -but does that matter?

# patch is --git not --no-prefix so jenkins can't apply
# the jenkins runs won't test this anyway; would visual review suffice, or could the tests
be added to the bigtop test suite?

> For those of us that completely destroy our CPUs, it is beneficial to be able to run
user tasks at a different priority than the tasktracker. This would allow for TTs (and by
extension, DNs) to get more CPU clock cycles so that things like heartbeats don't disappear.
