Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-1829) "0" value seen in PigStat's map/reduce runtime, even when the job is successful
Date Fri, 28 Jan 2011 23:14:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-1829?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12988306#action_12988306

Santhosh Srinivasan commented on PIG-1829:

A couple of questions:

What are the bounds on the reasonable amount of time?
Are there any plans in place to support APIs to access job history?

> Pig runtime calls JobClient.getMapTaskReports(jobId) and JobClient.getReduceTaskReports(jobId)
to get statistics about numbers of maps/reducers, as well as max/min/avg time of these tasks.
But from time to time, these calls return empty lists. When that happens pig is reports 0
values for the stats. 
> The jobtracker keeps the stats information only for a limited duration based on the configuration
parameters  mapred.jobtracker.completeuserjobs.maximum and mapred.job.tracker.retiredjobs.cache.size.
Since pig collects the stats after jobs have finished running, it is possible that the stats
for the initial jobs are no longer available. To have better chances of getting the stats,
it should be collected as soon as the job is over.
