How to stop a mapreduce job from terminal running on Hadoop Cluster?

+1 vote

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?

You can kill it by using the following yarn command

yarn application -kill
https://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r2.2.0/hadoop-yarn/hadoop-yarn-site/YarnCommands.html

Or use old hadoop job command
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11458519/how-to-kill-hadoop-jobs

In the Hadoop-2.7(yet to release in couple of weeks) the user friendly option provided for killing the applications from Web UI. (In the application block , ‘Kill Application’ button has been provided for killing applications)

You can also try

$ hadoop job -kill <jobid>
$ mapred job -kill <job_id>

A mapreduce job can be run as jar file from terminal or directly from eclipse IDE. When a job run as jar file from terminal it uses multiple jvm and all resources of cluster. Does the same thing happen when we run from IDE. I have run a job on both and it takes less time on IDE than jar file on terminal.

public class MaxMinReducer extends Reducer {
int max_sum=0; 
int mean=0;
int count=0;
Text max_occured_key=new Text();
Text mean_key=new Text("Mean : ");
Text count_key=new Text("Count : ");
int min_sum=Integer.MAX_VALUE; 
Text min_occured_key=new Text();

 public void reduce(Text key, Iterable<IntWritable> values, Context context) throws IOException, InterruptedException {
       int sum = 0;           

       for (IntWritable value : values) {
             sum += value.get();
             count++;
       }

       if(sum < min_sum)
          {
              min_sum= sum;
              min_occured_key.set(key);        
          }     


       if(sum > max_sum) {
           max_sum = sum;
           max_occured_key.set(key);
       }          

       mean=max_sum+min_sum/count;
  }

 @Override
 protected void cleanup(Context context) throws IOException, InterruptedException {
       context.write(max_occured_key, new IntWritable(max_sum));   
       context.write(min_occured_key, new IntWritable(min_sum));   
       context.write(mean_key , new IntWritable(mean));   
       context.write(count_key , new IntWritable(count));   
 }
}

Here I am writing minimum,maximum and mean of wordcount.

My input file :

high low medium high low high low large small medium

Actual output is :

high - 3------maximum

low - 3--------maximum

large - 1------minimum

small - 1------minimum

but i am not getting above output ...can anyone please help me?

Date date; long start, end; // for recording start and end time of job
date = new Date(); start = date.getTime(); // starting timer

job.waitForCompletion(true)

date = new Date(); end = date.getTime(); //end timer
log.info("Total Time (in milliseconds) = "+ (end-start));
log.info("Total Time (in seconds) = "+ (end-start)*0.001F);

I am not sure this is the correct way to find. Is there any other method or API to find the execution time of a MapReduce job?

Let we change the default block size to 32 MB and replication factor to 1. Let Hadoop cluster consists of 4 DNs. Let input data size is 192 MB. Now I want to place data on DNs as following. DN1 and DN2 contain 2 blocks (32+32 = 64 MB) each and DN3 and DN4 contain 1 block (32 MB) each. Can it be possible? How to accomplish it?
