Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-4613) Scheduling of reduce tasks results in starvation
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2012 22:54:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4613?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13445384#comment-13445384

Arun C Murthy commented on MAPREDUCE-4613:
------------------------------------------

What scheduler are you using? If you are using the default FifoScheduler, you'll run into
MAPREDUCE-4299 which isn't committed to hadoop-0.23.1.

> If a job has more reduce tasks than there are containers available, then the reduce tasks
can occupy all containers causing starvation.
> I understand that the correct behaviour when all containers are taken by reducers while
mappers are still pending, is for the running reducers to be "pre-empted". However, pre-emption
does not occur.
> A work-around is to set the number of reducers < available containers.
