Subject Re: Hanging regionservers

Using Ryan Rawson's suggested config tweaks, we have just completed a successful job run with
a 15GB sequence file, no hang.  I'm setting up to have multiple files process this weekend
with the new settings.  :-)  I believe the dfs socket write timeout being indefinite was the

I'll post my results on Monday.  Thanks for the support thus far!

I'm not seeing anything in that logfile, you are seeing compactions

"Blocking updates" which indicates that a particular region has
decided it's holding up to prevent taking too many inserts.

Like I said, you could be seeing this on a different regionserver, if
all the clients are blocked on 1 regionserver and can't get to the
others then most will look idle and only one will actually show
anything interesting in the log.

Can you check for this behaviour?

Also if you want to tweak the config with the values I pasted that should help.
