Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (HIVE-17146) Spark on Hive - Exception while joining tables - "Requested replication factor of 10 exceeds maximum of x"
Date Tue, 25 Jul 2017 18:22:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-17146?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16100502#comment-16100502

--------------------------------------------------------------

@[~ruili] The point is that the current code is ignoring {{dfs.replication}} (if value is
<10 = magic number) and the only known workaround is to set {{dfs.replication.max}} 
(which is not obvious until you spend a day with solving this problem...)

>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Hive
>    Affects Versions: 2.1.1, 3.0.0

> We found a bug in the current implementation of [org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.SparkHashTableSinkOperator|https://github.com/apache/hive/blob/master/ql/src/java/org/apache/hadoop/hive/ql/exec/SparkHashTableSinkOperator.java]
> The *magic number 10* for minReplication factor can cause the exception when the configuration
parameter _dfs.replication_ is lower than 10. 
> Consider these [properties configuration|https://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r2.7.2/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-hdfs/hdfs-default.xml]
on our cluster (with less than 10 nodes):
> {code}
> dfs.namenode.replication.min=1
> dfs.replication=2
> dfs.replication.max=512 (that's the default value)
> {code}
> The current implementation counts target file replication as follows (relevant snippets
of the code):
> {code}
> private int minReplication = 10;
> ...
> int dfsMaxReplication = hconf.getInt(DFS_REPLICATION_MAX, minReplication);
>     // minReplication value should not cross the value of dfs.replication.max
> minReplication = Math.min(minReplication, dfsMaxReplication);
> ...
> FileSystem fs = path.getFileSystem(htsOperator.getConfiguration());
> short replication = fs.getDefaultReplication(path);
> ...
> int numOfPartitions = replication;
> replication = (short) Math.max(minReplication, numOfPartitions);
> //use replication value in fs.create(path, replication);
> {code}
> With a current code the used replication value is 10 and the config value _dfs.replication_
is not used at all.
> There are probably more (easy) ways to fix it:
> # Set field  {code}private int minReplication = 1 ; {code} I don't see any obvious reason
for the value 10.    or
> # Init minReplication from config value _dfs.namenode.replication.min_ with a default
value 1. or
> # Count replication this way: {code}replication = Math.min(numOfPartitions, dfsMaxReplication);{code}
or
> # Use replication = numOfPartitions; directly
> Config value _dfs.replication_ has a default value 3 which is supposed to be always lower
than "dfs.replication.max", no checking is probably needed.
> Any suggestions which option to choose? 
> As a *workaround* for this issue we had to set dfs.replication.max=2, but obviously _dfs.replication_
value should NOT be ignored and the problem should be resolved.
