Subject [jira] [Commented] (TEZ-221) Deadlock in DAGSchedulerMRR when setting slow start to 0.5f on a small cluster
Date Thu, 15 Aug 2013 23:09:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TEZ-221?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13741635#comment-13741635

Bikas Saha commented on TEZ-221:
--------------------------------

While a bunch of these changes helped resolve deadlocks I dont see much value added by this
over the natural order scheduler. Both support slow start as maps complete and provide space
for reduces. DAGMRRScheduler allows a stronger reduce resource guarantees that allow reducers
to run even before some mappers even get to run. While this may be useful for some hand tuned
scenarios, it requires a tricky deadlock-prone dance with priorities and IMO should be left
as an expert level option. Also, making MRR logic work in a DAG gets even trickier. I plan
to keep this scheduler in the code but default to using natural order scheduler. If needed
this MRR scheduler may be plugged in via to-be-added API/config.

on single node cluster. The job runs very slow.
