Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-5176) Preemptable annotations (to support preemption in MR)
Date Mon, 20 May 2013 20:41:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-5176?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13662339#comment-13662339
] 

Karthik Kambatla commented on MAPREDUCE-5176:
---------------------------------------------

bq. what we envisioned for mapreduce is that and advanced user that have a stateful UDF can
mark it as @Preemptable and override the default save to checkpoint logic to include the portion
of state he/she cares about.

While that is perfectly fine for a first draft solution, a user might prefer to get feedback
when they annotate @Preemptable without fully understanding the consequences. Assuming @Stateless
is also added, the preemption code can warn the user that they have annotated @Preemptable
without @Stateless and that they are expected to implement/override the checkpoint logic.
Thoughts?

> Proposing a patch that introduces a new annotation @Preemptable that represents to the
framework property of user-supplied classes (e.g., Reducer, OutputCommiter). The intended
semantics is that a tagged class is safe to be preempted between invocations.
