Re: Disable retries
Hi Marco

You can disable retries by setting
mapred.map.max.attempts and mapred.reduce.max.attempts  to 1.

Also if you need to disable speculative execution. You can disable it by setting
mapred.map.tasks.speculative.execution and mapred.reduce.tasks.speculative.execution to false.

With these two steps you can ensure that a task is attempted only once.

These properties to be set in mapred-site.xml or at job level.

Subject: Disable retries

Hi there

Is there a way to disable retries when a mapper/reducer fails? I'm writing data in my mapper and I'd rather catch the failure, recover from a backup (fairly lightweight in this case, as the output tables aren't big) and restart.
