How to set job-priority on a hadoop job

+2 votes

I see that we can set job priority on a hadoop job. I have been trying to do it using the following command.

hadoop job -set-priority job-id VERY_LOW

It does not seem to be working.. after that I noticed the following

says that the job-priority on a queue is disabled by default. I would like to enable it. Googleing is not help please suggest how to proceed my hadoop version is Hadoop 2.3.0-cdh5.1.0

To run a job we use the command
$ hadoop jar example.jar inputpath outputpath
If job is so time taken and we want to stop it in middle then which command is used? Or is there any other way to do that?

Assume I have a machine on the same network as a hadoop 2 cluster but separate from it.

My understanding is that by setting certain elements of the config file or local xml files to point to the cluster I can launch a job without having to log into the cluster, move my jar to hdfs and start the job from the clusters hadoop machine.

Does this work? What Parameters need I sat? Where is the jar file? What issues would I see if the machine is running Windows with cygwin installed?

Does anyone knows how to ‘capture’ the exception which actually failed the job running on Mapper or Reducer at runtime? It seems Hadoop is designed to be fault tolerant that the failed jobs will be automatically rerun for a certain amount of times and won’t actually expose the real problem unless you look into the error log?

In my use case, I would like to capture the exception and make different response based on the type of the exception.

I want to ask, what's the best way implementing a Job which is importing files into the HDFS?

I have an external System offering data accessible through a Rest API. My goal is to have a job running in Hadoop which is periodical (maybe started by chron?) looking into the Rest API if new data is available.

It would be nice if also this job could run on multiple data nodes. But in difference to all the MapReduce examples I found, is my job looking for new Data or changed data from an external interface and compares the data with existing one.

This is a conceptual example of the job:

  • The job ask the Rest API if there are new files
  • if so, the job imports the first file in the list
  • look if the file already exits

  • if not, the job imports the file

  • if yes, the job compares the data with the data already stored

  • if changed the job updates the file

  • if more file exits the job continues with 2 -

  • otherwise ends.

Can anybody give me a little help how to start (its my first job I write...) ?
