Ivan Mitic updated MAPREDUCE-5066:

    Attachment: MAPREDUCE-5066.patch

Hi Arun,

I am attaching branch-1-win/branch-1 and branch-2 compatible patches.

A few notes on the patches:
 - Fixed a test verification issue in branch-1-win.3.patch
 - branch-1 and branch-1-win patches are fully compatible (and equivalent)
 - Branch-2 codebase changed significantly and I did my best effort to find the appropriate
forward patch. There are two implementations of the JobEndNotifier, mapred#JobEndNotifier
(based on the one from branch-1 but simplified) and mapreduce.v2.app#JobEndNotifier (new implementation).
The former is used in the LocalJobRunner and latter in the MR AppMaster. In my patch I did
the following:
    *a.* Applied the bugfixes to current state of mapred#JobEndNotifier and included the corresponding
    *b.* Given that mapreduce.v2.app#JobEndNotifier already sets the timeout to 5 seconds,
I did the same in mapred#JobEndNotifier. In other words, I did not introduce a config knob
that would allow the timeout to be configurable. My reasoning was that in branch-1, people
might see 5 second timeout as a regression and might want to change it to a different value.
In trunk, given that the timeout is already set to 5 seconds, this should be fine until proved
otherwise. Please advise if you think this is needed.

> In current code, timeout is not specified when JobTracker (JobEndNotifier) calls into
the notification URL. When the given URL points to a server that will not respond for a long
time, job notifications are completely stuck (given that we have only a single thread processing
all notifications). We've seen this cause noticeable delays in job execution in components
that rely on job end notifications (like Oozie workflows). 
> I propose we introduce a configurable timeout option and set a default to a reasonably
small value.
> If we want, we can also introduce a configurable number of workers processing the notification
queue (not sure if this is needed though at this point).
> I will prepare a patch soon. Please comment back.
