Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-4728) Interaction between oob heartbeats and damper can cause TT to heartbeat with zero delay

Nathan Roberts created MAPREDUCE-4728:

             Summary: Interaction between oob heartbeats and damper can cause TT to heartbeat
with zero delay
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-4728
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4728
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.0.3
            Reporter: Nathan Roberts

When mapreduce.tasktracker.outofband.heartbeat is true and mapreduce.tasktracker.outofband.heartbeat.damper
is something largish (like the default of 1000000), the TT doesn't wait for tasks to finish
before heartbeating back to the JT. This causes excessive load on the JT which in-turn reduces
overall cluster performance.

I believe the problem is that in the following block of code, when getHeartbeatInterval()
returns 0, we heartbeat back immediately BUT finishedCount does not get reset. It looks like
nothing ever gets us out of this situation so we basically heartbeat without ever sleeping.
        // accelerate to account for multiple finished tasks up-front
        long remaining =
          (lastHeartbeat + getHeartbeatInterval(finishedCount.get())) - now;
        while (remaining > 0) {
          // sleeps for the wait time or
          // until there are *enough* empty slots to schedule tasks
          synchronized (finishedCount) {

            // Recompute
            now = System.currentTimeMillis();
            remaining =
              (lastHeartbeat + getHeartbeatInterval(finishedCount.get())) - now;

            if (remaining <= 0) {
              // Reset count
