Subject [jira] [Updated] (MAPREDUCE-5965) Hadoop streaming throws error if list of input files is high. Error is: "error=7, Argument list too long at if number of input file is high"
Date Mon, 18 May 2015 11:33:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-5965?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Wilfred Spiegelenburg updated MAPREDUCE-5965:
---------------------------------------------
    Attachment: MAPREDUCE-5965.2.patch

Ran into the same issue. Re-based and cleaned up patch which does the same as the Hive patch
(truncate the environment value)

> Hadoop streaming exposes all the key values in job conf as environment variables when
it forks a process for streaming code to run. Unfortunately the variable mapreduce_input_fileinputformat_inputdir
contains the list of input files, and Linux has a limit on size of environment variables +
arguments.
> Based on how long the list of files and their full path is this could be pretty huge.
And given all of these variables are not even used it stops user from running hadoop job with
large number of files, even though it could be run.
> Linux throws E2BIG if the size is greater than certain size which is error code 7. And
java translates that to "error=7, Argument list too long". More: http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man2/execve.2.html
I suggest skipping variables if it is greater than certain length. That way if user code requires
the environment variable it would fail. It should also introduce a config variable to skip
long variables, and set it to false by default. That way user has to specifically set it to
true to invoke this feature.
