Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-6433) launchTime may be negative
Date Mon, 20 Jul 2015 08:41:04 GMT

zhihai xu commented on MAPREDUCE-6433:

Thanks for reporting this issue [~aw]! I can work on this issue.
I looked at the code, there is only one possibility to generate negative launchTime.
Based on the code:
job launch time is from JobInitedEvent which is created at JobImpl.java
      JobStartEvent jse = (JobStartEvent) event;
      if (jse.getRecoveredJobStartTime() != 0) {
        job.startTime = jse.getRecoveredJobStartTime();
      } else {
        job.startTime = job.clock.getTime();
So the only possibility is jse.getRecoveredJobStartTime() returns negative value.
JobStartEvent is created at MRAppMaster.java. {{getRecoveredJobStartTime}} depends on {{MRAppMaster#recoveredJobStartTime}}
{{recoveredJobStartTime}} is initialized as 0 but it will be changed at the following code
in {{MRAppMaster#parsePreviousJobHistory}}
    recoveredJobStartTime = jobInfo.getLaunchTime();
It means jobInfo.getLaunchTime() may return negative value.
jobInfo is defined in {{JobHistoryParser#JobInfo}} and the launchTime is initialized as -1,
It will only be changed by handleJobInitedEvent.
      submitTime = launchTime = finishTime = -1;
So if previous JobHistory file doesn't have JOB_INITED event, the issue may happen.
Based on this, I think if the first job attempt failed to init job(JOB_INIT), we may hit this
issue for the second job attempt.
I will create a test case to reproduce this issue.

files may be set to -1.
