Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAHOUT-834) rowsimilarityjob doesn't clean it's temp dir, and fails when seeing it again
Date Sun, 09 Oct 2011 19:31:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAHOUT-834?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13123759#comment-13123759
] 

Sebastian Schelter commented on MAHOUT-834:
-------------------------------------------

Isn't that the standard behavior of all jobs? Maybe we should a generic option that makes
a job delete the temp dir if it already exists.

> If I do this:
> mahout rowsimilarity --input matrixified/matrix --output sims/ --numberOfColumns 27684
--similarityClassname SIMILARITY_LOGLIKELIHOOD --excludeSelfSimilarity
> then clean my output and rerun,
> rm -rf sims/ # (though this step doesn't even seem needed)
> then try again:
> mahout rowsimilarity --input matrixified/matrix --output sims/ --numberOfColumns 27684
--similarityClassname SIMILARITY_LOGLIKELIHOOD --excludeSelfSimilarity
> The temp files left from the first run make a re-run impossible - we get: "Exception
in thread "main" org.apache.hadoop.mapred.FileAlreadyExistsException: Output directory temp/weights
already exists".
> Manually deleting the temp directory fixes this.
> I get same behaviour if I explicitly pass in a --tempdir path, e.g.:
> mahout rowsimilarity --input matrixified/matrix --output sims/ --numberOfColumns 27684
--similarityClassname SIMILARITY_LOGLIKELIHOOD --excludeSelfSimilarity --tempDir tmp2/
> Presumably something like HadoopUtil.delete(getConf(),tempDirPath) is needed somewhere?
 (and maybe --overwrite too ?)
