Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-1471) FileOutputCommitter does not safely clean up it's temporary files
Date Mon, 23 Apr 2012 13:47:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1471?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13259603#comment-13259603

Robert Joseph Evans commented on MAPREDUCE-1471:

Jim, it should not be too difficult for you to take the existing FileOutputCommitter and modify
it to do what you want.  Be aware though that going to the 2.0 line FileOutputCommitter has
changed so that if an application master crashes it can recover and start over without needing
to rerun anything that finished successfully before.  Just be aware that the directory structure
is different and when upmerging to trunk/2.0 you will probably need to modify your code.

>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
>            Reporter: Jim Finnessy
>   Original Estimate: 4h
>  Remaining Estimate: 4h
> When the FileOutputCommitter cleans up during it's cleanupJob method, it potentially
deletes the temporary files of other concurrent jobs.
> Since all the temporary files for all concurrent jobs are written to working_path/_temporary/
any concurrent tasks that have the same working_path will remove all currently executing jobs
when it removes working_path/_temporary during job cleanup.
> If the file name output is guaranteed by the client application to be unique, the temporary
files/directories should also be guaranteed to be unique to avoid this problem. Suggest modifying
cleanupJob to only remove files that it created itself.
