Subject Re: Understanding shuffle file name conflicts
Date Wed, 25 Mar 2015 11:40:19 GMT
Hi Jerry & Josh

It has been a while since the last time I looked into Spark core shuffle 
code, maybe I’m wrong here. But the shuffle ID is created along with 
ShuffleDependency, which is part of the RDD DAG. So if we submit 
multiple jobs over the same RDD DAG, I think the shuffle IDs in these 
jobs should duplicate. For example:

|val  dag  =  sc.parallelize(Array(1,2,3)).map(i => i -> i).reduceByKey(_ + _)

 From the debug log output, I did see duplicated shuffle IDs in both 
jobs. Something like this:

|# Job 1
15/03/25 19:26:34 DEBUG BlockStoreShuffleFetcher: Fetching outputs for shuffle 0, reduce 2

# Job 2
15/03/25 19:26:36 DEBUG BlockStoreShuffleFetcher: Fetching outputs for shuffle 0, reduce 5

So it’s also possible that some shuffle output files get reused in 
different jobs. But Kannan, did you submit separate jobs over the same 
RDD DAG as I did above? If not, I’d agree with Jerry and Josh.

(Did I miss something here?)
