Subject Hadoop fail to find working directory when running Debug Scripts in 1.0.0
Date Sat, 26 May 2012 02:12:36 GMT
Hi All,

I am using Hadoop 1.0.0.

I am trying to write a sample that shows how debug scripts works. To do
that, I have written a map reduce job that always fail (by explicitly
throwing an exception) see FaultyWordCount.java. I have setup the debug
scripts as per http://developer.yahoo.com/hadoop/tutorial/module5.htmlWordcountWithDebugScript.java

When I run the job, I get the following error when Hadoop try to run the
debug script.

-------------------- DEBUG OUT---------------------
bash: /Users/srinath/playground/hadoop-book/hadoop-1.0.0/fail-script: No
such file or directory
bash: line 0: exec:
/Users/srinath/playground/hadoop-book/hadoop-1.0.0/fail-script: cannot
execute: No such file or directory

I looked at further, and error happens due to following error (found from
task tracker logs)

2012-05-26 05:59:57,110 WARN org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskTracker: Working
Directory of the task attempt_201205260558_0001_m_000000_0 doesnt exist.
Caught exception org.apache.hadoop.util.DiskChecker$DiskErrorException:
Could not find
in any of the configured local directories
at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskRunner.run(TaskRunner.java:285)
This happens in line 2871 of org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskTracker, where
LocalDirAllocator.getLocalPathToRead( ..) throws an error. As I understood
this happens due to work directory is missing from
Rest of the path exists.

When is work directory created? is it always created?

Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?
