Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-4381) Make PROGRESS_INTERVAL of org.apache.hadoop.mapred.Task a tunable
Date Sat, 07 Jul 2012 00:35:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4381?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13408488#comment-13408488

Luke Lu commented on MAPREDUCE-4381:

MAPREDUCE-4400 makes the configuration unnecessary. I agree with Steve that exposing this
config can cause more issues than it can solve.

>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: task, tasktracker

> Currently PROGRESS_INTERVAL is a hard-coded value and is set to 3000 msec. We tried making
it a tunable and experimented with different values. In some cases setting it to a smaller
value like 1000 msec helps significantly improve performance of short running jobs such as
piEstimator. This is because the task threads do not end up blocking for as many as 3 seconds
for their last progress update event. We also noticed close to 14% improvement on Mahout KMeans
iteration jobs which take more than 5 minutes on the test cluster that we are using. Please
let me know if this seems to be a good idea. I have an initial patch that I have attached
here. This is based on branch-1 tree. It may need some rework on MRv2 based branches I think.
Also note that I have not changed the variable naming style for PROGRESS_INTERVAL even though
it is not a public static final anymore. I can revise the patch if there are no objections
to this idea. 
> Thanks.
