Subject [jira] [Commented] (NUTCH-2328) GeneratorJob does not generate anything on second run
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2016 19:27:58 GMT


Arthur B commented on NUTCH-2328:

I don't think this has anything to do with Spring/Hadoop: it just recreates the issue. I believe
you can recreate this from a standalone app that will submit the GeneratorJob twice to Hadoop
(I recon we can disregard that aspect - Spring Data Hadoop). 
Regarding the locality of the {{count}} variable: I do not believe that turning it into a
{{instance}} member would do here, unless I am missing something I do not think that it will
be solving the issue. My reasoning for this is that a {{GeneratorJob}} once submitted to Hadoop,
you can not count on the fact that it will only reside on one Hadoop node. Potentially the
{{M/R job}} will run in multiple Hadoop nodes, and the {{M/R job}} should not have state as
such (you can not count on its locality). So in my opinion the only solution is to have a
cluster wide propagated {{count}}er that keeps track of how many {{Webpage}}s have been dealt
AFAIK a local class {{instance}} variable would not do this (propagate a cluster wide counter)...
unless I am missing something. It can be easily tested by running it on a 2 cluster machine
and letting more than one Reducers run up.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: generator
>    Affects Versions: 2.2, 2.3, 2.2.1, 2.3.1
>         Environment: Ubuntu 16.04 / Hadoop 2.7.1
>            Reporter: Arthur B
>              Labels: fails, generator, subsequent
>             Fix For: 2.4
>         Attachments: generator-issue-static-count.patch
>   Original Estimate: 24h
>  Remaining Estimate: 24h
> Given a topN parameter (ie 10) the GeneratorJob will fail to generate anything new on
the subsequent runs within the same process space.
> To reproduce the issue submit the GeneratorJob twice one after another to the M/R framework.
Second time will say it generated 0 URLs.
> This issue is due to the usage of the static count field (org.apache.nutch.crawl.GeneratorReducer#count)
to determine if the topN value has been reached.
