Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-5043) Fetch failure processing can cause AM event queue to backup and eventually OOM
Date Sat, 02 Mar 2013 00:41:12 GMT
Jason Lowe created MAPREDUCE-5043:

             Summary: Fetch failure processing can cause AM event queue to backup and eventually
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-5043
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-5043
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: mr-am
    Affects Versions: 0.23.7, 2.0.4-beta
            Reporter: Jason Lowe
            Assignee: Jason Lowe
            Priority: Blocker

Saw an MRAppMaster with a 3G heap OOM.  Upon investigating another instance of it running,
we saw the UI in a weird state where the task table and task attempt tables in the job overview
page weren't consistent.  The AM log showed the AsyncDispatcher had hundreds of thousands
of events in the event queue, and jstacks showed it spending a lot of time in fetch failure
processing.  It turns out fetch failure processing is currently *very* expensive, with a triple
{{for}} loop where the inner loop is calling the quite-expensive {{TaskAttempt.getReport}}.
 That function ends up type-converting the entire task report, counters and all, and performing
locale conversions among other things.  It does this for every reduce task in the job, for
every map task that failed.  And when it's done building up the large task report, it pulls
out one field, the phase, then throws the report away.

While the AM is busy processing fetch failures, tasks attempts are continuing to send events
to the AM including memory-expensive events like status updates which include the counters.
 These back up in the AsyncDispatcher event queue and eventually even an AM with a large heap
size will run out of memory and crash or expire because it thrashes in garbage collect.
