Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-4737) Hadoop does not close output file / does not call Mapper.cleanup if exception in map
Date Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:21:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4737?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13639574#comment-13639574

Chris Nauroth commented on MAPREDUCE-4737:

The new patches look good, and the new tests are very helpful.  I ran some tests on Windows
using both trunk and branch-1-win, and they passed.

I have a question on this part:

    try {
      runner.run(in, new OldOutputCollector(collector, conf), reporter);
      // start the sort phase only if there are reducers
      if (numReduceTasks > 0) {
      in = null;
      collector = null;
    } finally {

Is it necessary to close in the try block, considering that close is guaranteed to happen
again in the finally block?  Also, why bother to set local variables in and collector to null?
 Attempting to encourage garbage collection to clean them up faster?  Something else?

> Find this in Pig unit test TestStore under Windows. There are dangling files because
map does not close the file when exception happens in map(). In Windows, Hadoop will not remove
a file if it is not closed. This happens in reduce() as well.
