Fixing a failed reduce task
I am running a map reduce ob where a few reduce tasks fail with an out of
memory error -
Increasing the memory is not an option. However if a retry had information
that an earlier attempt
failed out of memory and especially it it had access to a few numbers
describing how far the earlier attempt
managed to get, it could defend against the error
I have seen little information about how a retried task might access the
error logs or other information
from previous attempts - is there such a mechanism???
