Re: How to stop a MR Job when a certain condition is met?

Arun,

Let's say there is 1PB of data in HDFS and the requirement is to look for a
particular sequence in the whole data. If the sequence is found then the MR
job could be aborted. There is no meaning in keeping the Map/Reduce tasks
running.

There was a query in one of the forums on how a MR job can be aborted if a
particular condition is met.

Thanks,
Praveen
