Subject [jira] [Updated] (MAPREDUCE-4299) Terasort hangs with MR2 FifoScheduler
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2012 01:13:35 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4299?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Tom White updated MAPREDUCE-4299:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: MAPREDUCE-4299.patch

The problem is that FifoScheduler always sets the application headroom to be the entire set
of cluster resources, without taking into account any containers that have been assigned.
In some cases, like the terasort case mentioned in the JIRA, this leads to the reducer tasks
using all the cluster resources before the map tasks have finished, resulting in deadlock.

Attached is a fix with a unit test.

> What happens is that the number of reducers ramp up until they occupy all of the job's
containers, at which point the maps no longer make any progress and the job hangs.
> When the same job is run with the CapacityScheduler it succeeds, so this looks like a
FifoScheduler bug.
