Container killed with Exit Code is 143, not restarting

New Contributor

My container is getting killed due to OOM. But it does not get restarted after getting killed. What configuration option is available so that the container is restarted on that node?

Exit Code 143 happens due to multiple reasons and one of them is related to Memory/GC issues. Your default Mapper/reducer memory setting may not be sufficient to run the large data set. Thus, try setting up higher AM, MAP and REDUCER memory when a large yarn job is invoked.
