Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-4304) Deadlock where all containers are held by ApplicationMasters should be prevented
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 21:25:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4304?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13475367#comment-13475367

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on MAPREDUCE-4304:

A way to avoid deadlocks is to use a dedicated queue for the oozie action launcher jobs, different
that the queue used for the oozie action jobs themselves.

Also, launcher jobs could be configured to use little memory for the case of map-reduce actions
(the launchers only submit the real job). For other action types, ie pig & hive, the launcher
runs the actual client invocation (pig or hive), so launcher memory may have to higher than
for map-reduce launcher action.

A more longer term approach (in combination with the above) would be to use a OozieLauncherAM
thus reducing the number of containers for each launchers from 2 to 1.

>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: mrv2, resourcemanager
>    Affects Versions: 0.23.1
>            Reporter: Herman Chen
> In my test cluster with 4 NodeManagers, each with only ~1.6G container memory, when a
burst of jobs, e.g. >10, are concurrently submitted, it is likely that 4 jobs are accepted,
with 4 ApplicationMasters allocated, but then the jobs block each other indefinitely because
they're all waiting to allocate more containers.
> Note that the problem is not limited to tiny cluster like this.  As long as the number
of jobs being submitted is greater than the rate jobs finish, it may run into a vicious cycle
where more and more containers are locked up by ApplicationMasters.
