Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-132) Add configurable behavior for when a pipeline output directory already exists
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2013 03:53:13 GMT


Josh Wills commented on CRUNCH-132:

Definitely +1 for WriteMode.

Regarding making the naiive:

pipeline.write(pcollect1, target); 
pipeline.write(pcollect2, target);;

throw an exception, I think that the easiest way to do that would be to have MRPipeline check
to see if an equal Target is written to more than once w/o a WriteMode.APPEND being specified.
I think I can make it work, I'll cook up something this evening and post it tomorrow.

> Usually when you run a mapreduce job and the output directory already exists, the job
fails (won't start). A Crunch job does run, but results in the output data being duplicated
in the output directory with numbered files that follow on from the previous run. 
> Example
> Run 1, single reducer /output -> /output/part-r-00000
> Run 2, single reducer /output -> /output/part-r-00000, /output/part-r-00001
> I didn't realise I'd run my job twice, so when I looked in the directory it seemed that
there had been 2 reducers and somehow the output had been generated twice, which was confusing.

> I realise this may be by design, but it feels wrong to me. I'd prefer if the behaviour
of a standard mapreduce job was preserved.
