Subject Re: cluster randomly re-starting jobs
Date Mon, 21 Mar 2016 21:33:01 GMT
Never used Ambari and I don't know if this is your problem, but I have seen
similar behavior. In my case, my application failed and Hadoop kicked off a
second attempt. I didn't realize this, but when I refreshed the Spark UI,
suddenly everything seemed reset! This is because the application ID is
part of the URL, but not the attempt ID, so when the context for the second
attempt starts it will be at the same URL as the context for the first job.

To verify if this is the problem you could look at the application in the
Hadoop console (or whatever the equivalent is on Ambari) and see if there
are multiple attempts. You can also see it in the Spark history server
(under incomplete applications, if the second attempt is still running).
