Subject: Exception due to inproper configuration

Hi All,

When we submit a job through job client, job's jar in mapred.system.dir
directory will be replicated as per configuration parameter
mapred.submit.replication, which is present in mapred-default.xml.By default
this value 10.

Now there are chances of configuring dfs.replication and
dfs.replication.max, which are present in hdfs-site.xml, independent of
mapred.submit.replication.

Suppose user has configured dfs.replication.max as 5(say), then the
following exception will be thrown

org.apache.hadoop.ipc.RemoteException: java.io.IOException: file
/home/kamesh/hadoop/hadoop-root/mapred/system/job_201102221545_0001/job.jar.
Requested replication 10 exceeds maximum 2

As per the code this absolutely correct, and it should be so.

However, I feel setting replication as maximum replication, when replication
exceeds maximum replication. This even ensures application execution.

Even this behavior has both pros and cons.
It executes the application. However it will not replicate as per the user
given configuration.

What do you think?
