Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-5330) Killing M/R JVM's leads to metrics not being uploaded
Date Tue, 18 Jun 2013 22:49:22 GMT
Xi Fang created MAPREDUCE-5330:

             Summary: Killing M/R JVM's leads to metrics not being uploaded
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-5330
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-5330
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1-win
         Environment: Windows
            Reporter: Xi Fang
            Assignee: Xi Fang

In MapReduce, we sometimes kill a task's JVM before it naturally shuts down if we want to
launch other tasks (look in JvmManager$JvmManagerForType.reapJvm). This behavior means that
if the map task process is in the middle of doing some cleanup/finalization after the task
is done, it might be interrupted/killed without giving it a chance. 

In the Microsoft's Hadoop Service, after a Map/Reduce task is done and during closing file
systems in a special shutdown hook, we're typically uploading storage (ASV in our context)
usage metrics to Microsoft Azure Tables. So if this kill happens these metrics get lost. The
impact is that for many MR jobs we don't see accurate metrics reported most of the time.
