Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-6678) Allow ShuffleHandler readahead without drop-behind
Date Mon, 09 May 2016 17:39:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-6678?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15276694#comment-15276694

Eric Payne commented on MAPREDUCE-6678:
---------------------------------------

Thanks, [~nroberts], for raising this issue and providing a patch.

bq. Tested this patch on a 10-node cluster using terasort. Verified using strace that nodemanager
is issuing correct WILLNEED without DONTNEED.

I recognize that it's difficult to produce a unit test for the patch. Would it be possible
for you to post a very brief justification of that?

Otherwise, patch looks good to me.

> Currently mapreduce.shuffle.manage.os.cache enables/disables both readahead (POSIX_FADV_WILLNEED)
and drop-behind (POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED) logic within the ShuffleHandler.
> It would be beneficial if these were separately configurable. 
> - Running without readahead can lead to significant seek storms caused by large numbers
of sendfiles() competing with one another.
> - However, running with drop-behind can also lead to seek storms because there are cases
where the server can successfully write the shuffle bytes to the network, BUT the client doesn't
want the bytes right now (MergeManager wants to WAIT is an example) so it ignores them and
asks for them again a bit later. This causes repeated reads of the same data from disk.
> I'll attach a simple patch that enables/disables readahead based on mapreduce.shuffle.readahead.bytes==0,
leaving mapreduce.shuffle.manage.os.cache controlling only the drop-behind.
