Mapreduce Job -Taking too long to complete

Mapreduce Job -Taking too long to complete

New Contributor

Hi,

We have written a mapreduce job to process log files. As of now we have around 52GB of input files but it is taking around an hour to process the data.It creates only one reducer job by default.Often we get to see a timeout error in the reduce task and then it restarts and gets completed. Below is the stats for the successful completion of the job. Kindly let us know how the performance can be improved.

Re: Mapreduce Job -Taking too long to complete

Hello Venkadesh

It would be worth investigating why your reducer gets a time out error and then gets completed. Do you have a slow node, is a code related error, are your reducers sitting around too long. According to those questions many options are available - you could increase the task timeout, (mapred.task.timeout)

- you could force increase the number of reducers to get better distribution (mapred.reduce.tasks=# of reducers)

-you could configure when reducers start get to start clsoer to the end of the map phase (mapred.reduce.slowstart.completed.maps)

- you could have speculative execution to see if some nodes are faster then others:

These are some ideas that come to mind, depending on a closer analysis their might also be other ways.

hope any of this helps

Thanks @nmaillard. When the job starts it prints the below warnings and it takes around ten minutes before the job gets started. Is this something normal or need to be looked into ?

Re: Mapreduce Job -Taking too long to complete

The warning DFSInputStream has been closed already is a warning and is fixed in hadoop 2.7.2 : https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-8099 taking 10 minutes to submit the job seems to be another problem from your reduce issue. Do check what your available ressources look like in yarn and how long it takes to get an Application master. i t would interesting in the logs to see if he is waiting or what else is happening. You could also check it your timeline server is responding and not underwater as it could have impacts

@nmaillardWhen the process starts I see the YARN memory as 100% on the Ambari homepage.How do we find the time taken to get an Application master.
