Subject RE: what is the map reduce fetcher??(and why is it binding to localhost when TT binds to my host???)
Date Sun, 02 Jan 2011 21:12:26 GMT
Well, I am running colinux and I have to make sure all ports I need routed to my datanode/tasknode
are in the config file so the ephemeral doesn't work and I locked it down to fix it....I have
been trying to hook up eclipse to debug but just found out that child processes are spun up.
 I think that part is working now, but zookeeper isn't though I should be able to figure out
from debugging it I think if I manage to hook up the eclipse debugger to my task node with
that cool IsolationRunner class.

This is normal if am right. A TaskTracker's service by default binds
to the loopback as it only needs to communicate with its child Task
JVMs and has no communication from outside.

The TaskTracker binding port by default is an ephemeral one.

For Hadoop 0.20.2, the "Expert mode (aka, think twice before
changing)" configuration you're looking for is:

That property by default is set to the string "",
explaining the above behavior. I haven't seen it cause trouble really
-- what issue are you facing, and are you absolutely sure it is cause
of this?
