So many unexpected "Lost task tracker" errors making the job to be killed Options
Hey there, I have a small cluster running on 0.20.2. Everything is
fine but once in a while, when a job with a lot of map tasks is
running I start getting the error:
Lost task tracker: tracker_cluster1:localhost.localdomain/
Before getting the error, the task attempt has been running for 7h
(and normally it takes 46sec to complete). Sometimes, another task
attempt is launched in paralel, takes 50 sec. to complete and so the
first one gets killed (the second one can even be launched in the same
task tracker and work). But in the end, I get so many "Lost task
tracker" so the job get killed.
The job will end up with some of the task trackers blacklisted.
If I kill the "zombie tasks", remove the jobtracker and tasktracer pid
files, remove the userlogs and stop/start mapred, everything works
fine again, but some days later, the error will happen again.
Any idea why this happens? Could someway be related with having too
many attempt folders in the userlogs (even that there is space left on
Thanks in advance.
