Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-19698) Race condition in stale attempt task completion vs current attempt task completion when task is doing persistent state changes
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2017 21:54:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-19698?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15881358#comment-15881358

Kay Ousterhout commented on SPARK-19698:
----------------------------------------

I think this is the same issue as SPARK-19263 -- can you check to see if that fixes the problem
/ have you looked at that JIRA?  I wrote a super long description of the problem towards the
end of the associated PR.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-19698
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Mesos, Spark Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>            Reporter: Charles Allen

> We have encountered a strange scenario in our production environment. Below is the best
guess we have right now as to what's going on.
> Potentially, the final stage of a job has a failure in one of the tasks (such as OOME
on the executor) which can cause tasks for that stage to be relaunched in a second attempt.
> https://github.com/apache/spark/blob/v2.1.0/core/src/main/scala/org/apache/spark/scheduler/DAGScheduler.scala#L1155
> keeps track of which tasks have been completed, but does NOT keep track of which attempt
those tasks were completed in. As such, we have encountered a scenario where a particular
task gets executed twice in different stage attempts, and the DAGScheduler does not consider
if the second attempt is still running. This means if the first task attempt succeeded, the
second attempt can be cancelled part-way through its run cycle if all other tasks (including
the prior failed) are completed successfully.
> What this means is that if a task is manipulating some state somewhere (for example:
a upload-to-temporary-file-location, then delete-then-move on an underlying s3n storage implementation)
the driver can improperly shutdown the running (2nd attempt) task between state manipulations,
leaving the persistent state in a bad state since the 2nd attempt never got to complete its
manipulations, and was terminated prematurely at some arbitrary point in its state change
logic (ex: finished the delete but not the move).
> This is using the mesos coarse grained executor. It is unclear if this behavior is limited
to the mesos coarse grained executor or not.
