Subject Re: dynamic partition query dies with LeaseExpiredException
Date Fri, 01 Oct 2010 19:24:22 GMT
Thanks Ning,

Our TRANSFORM script is pretty quick, the whole query only took 30 seconds
when we added "and project='abc' " to limit the amount of input data.  So it
seems like the slowdown is somewhere in handling the data before (or after?)
it gets to the transform script.  I can try adding some logging in our
script though, so we can see how far it does get through the data.

We'll take a look at 0.20.2 but it might take a while until we can upgrade
our main cluster to it.
