FileNotFoundException in Reduce step when running importtsv program
Nichole Treadway 2011-03-17, 18:58
Hi all,

I am attempting to bulk load data into HBase using the importtsv program. I
have a very wide table (about 200 columns, 2 column families), and right now
I'm trying to load in data from a single data file with 1 million rows.

Importtsv works fine for this data when I am writing directly to the table.
However, I would like the import to write to an output file, using the '*
importtsv.bulk.output*' option. I have installed the HBase 1861 patch (
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1861) to allow bulk upload with
multi-column families.

When I run the bulk upload program with the output file option on my data,
it always fails in the reduce step. There are a large number of reduce tasks
(2956) that get created. These tasks all get to about 35% completion and
then fail with the following error:
2011-03-17 11:52:48,095 WARN org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskTracker: Error

I've put the full output of the reduce task attempt here:
http://pastebin.com/WMfqUwqC

I've tried running the program on a small table (3 column families,
inserting 3 values each for 1 million rows) and it works fine, though it
only creates 1 reduce task for this.

Any idea what the problem could be?

FYI, my cluster has 4 nodes all acting as datanodes/regionservers, running
on 64-bit Red Hat Linux. I'm running the hadoop-0.20-append branch, and for
hbase, the latest revision of the 0.90.2 branch.

Thanks for your help,
Nichole
