Subject Getting (or setting) a job ID
Date Tue, 10 May 2011 22:45:19 GMT
We have intermittently seen cases where a job will "freeze" for some as 
yet unknown reason, and thereby block other processes waiting for that 
job to complete.  I'm trying to modify our job-launching scripts to kill 
the job if it doesn't complete in a reasonable amount of time, however 
to do that I would need to know the job ID (ie along the lines of 

As far as I can tell there is no good way to map the name we use to 
create the job to the job ID from the command line (none of the "hadoop 
job" options do it).  Am I missing something in the CLI that would help 
with this?  Alternate ideas are also welcome.
