             Summary: TestFixedLengthInputFormat#testFormatCompressedIn is flaky
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-7052
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: client, test
            Reporter: Peter Bacsko
            Assignee: Peter Bacsko

Sometimes the test case TestFixedLengthInputFormat#testFormatCompressedIn can 
fail with the following error:

java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Requested array size exceeds VM limit

*Root cause:* under special circumstances, the following line can return a huge 

          // Test a split size that is less than record len
          numSplits = (int)(fileSize/Math.floor(recordLength/2));

For example, let {{seed}} be 2026428718. This causes {{recordLength}} to be 1 
at iteration 19. {{Math.floor()}} returns negative Infinity, which becomes 
positve infinity after the divison. Casting it to {{int}} yields 
{{Integer.MAX_VALUE}}. Eventually we get an OOME because the test wants to 
create a huge {{InputSplit}} array.
