How to enable or disable speculative execution?

Can you explain how to enable or disable speculative execution?

1 REPLY 1

Speculative execution is a MapReduce job optimization technique in Hadoop that is enabled by default. You can disable speculative execution for mappers and reducers in mapped-site.xml as shown below:

<property>

<name>mapred.map.tasks.speculative.execution</name>

<value>false</value>

</property>

<property>

<name>mapred.reduce.tasks.speculative.execution</name>

<value>false</value>

</property>
