Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-4152) map task left hanging after AM dies trying to connect to RM
Date Wed, 02 May 2012 22:20:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4152?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13266960#comment-13266960

Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli commented on MAPREDUCE-4152:

Going back and forth on this one, apologies.

So the situation is that RM went down somehow and AM exited without killing its tasks. This
is expected IIRC. Here's what I think:
 - When RM restart works, AMs should *never* exit because of connection issues. (Of course,
there is a corner case of AMs network itself being down, we should handle that somehow)
 - Even in the short term, if RM goes down and AM exits in the mean while, whenever RM is
back up, it will(should) kill all the containers of this application( by commanding the NMs
to do so).

Given above, I don't see why the AM needs to handle this specially. May be I am missing something?
