Subject [jira] [Updated] (MRUNIT-165) MapReduceDriver calls Mapper#cleanup for each input instead of once
Date Fri, 30 Nov 2012 17:33:58 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MRUNIT-165?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Yoni Ben-Meshulam updated MRUNIT-165:
-------------------------------------

    Description: 
MapReduceDriver calls the Mapper#run method for each input, causing the Mapper#cleanup method
to be called multiple times. 

I believe this is a bug, since the contract in MapReduce is that, for a single Mapper instance,
the Mapper#cleanup method is only called once after all inputs to that mapper have been processed.
I might be mistaken in my assumption here.

This would not be an issue, were it not for the fact that MapReduceDriver has only a single
instance of Mapper.

One solution might be to pass the Mapper _class_ into the MapReduceDriver and create a new
instance for each input. Another solution might be to call the MapDriver with multiple inputs
(which AFAIK is not possible).

----

To reproduce, create a MapReduce job with some stateful mapper:

{code}
public class ClosedFormRegressionMapper extends Mapper<LongWritable, Text, Text, IntWritable>
{

    public static final Text KEY = new Text("SomeKey");
    private Int someState = 0;

    /**
     * Increment someState for each input.
     *
     * @param context the Hadoop job Map context
     * @throws java.io.IOException
     */
    @Override
    public void map(
            LongWritable key,
            Text value,
            Context context
    ) throws IOException, InterruptedException {

        this.someState += 1;

    }

    /**
     * Runs once after all maps have occurred. Dumps the accumulated state to the output.
     * @param context the Hadoop job Map context
     */
    @Override
    protected void cleanup(Context context) throws IOException, InterruptedException {
        context.write(this.KEY, new IntWritable(someState));
    }

}
{code}

  was:
MapReduceDriver calls the {{run}} method for each input, causing the {{cleanup}} method to
be called multiple times. 

I believe this is a bug, since the contract in MapReduce is that, for a single Mapper instance,
the {{Mapper#cleanup}} method is only called once after all inputs to that mapper have been
processed. I might be mistaken in my assumption here.

This would not be an issue, were it not for the fact that MapReduceDriver has only a single
instance of Mapper.

One solution might be to pass the Mapper _class_ into the MapReduceDriver and create a new
instance for each input. Another solution might be to call the MapDriver with multiple inputs

     * @param context the Hadoop job Map context
     * @throws java.io.IOException
     */
    @Override
    public void map(
            LongWritable key,
            Text value,
            Context context
    ) throws IOException, InterruptedException {

        this.someState += 1;

    }

    /**

     * @param context the Hadoop job Map context
     */
    @Override
    protected void cleanup(Context context) throws IOException, InterruptedException {
        context.write(this.KEY, new IntWritable(someState));
    }

}
{code}
