Junping Du updated YARN-2410:
-----------------------------
    Priority: Major  (was: Critical)

> Nodemanager ShuffleHandler can easily exhaust file descriptors
> --------------------------------------------------------------

>                 Key: YARN-2410
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-2410
>             Project: Hadoop YARN
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: nodemanager
>    Affects Versions: 2.5.0
>            Reporter: Nathan Roberts
>            Assignee: Chen He
>
> The async nature of the shufflehandler can cause it to open a huge number of
> file descriptors, when it runs out it crashes.
> Scenario:
> Job with 6K reduces, slow start set to 0.95, about 40 map outputs per node.
> Let's say all 6K reduces hit a node at about same time asking for their
> outputs. Each reducer will ask for all 40 map outputs over a single socket in 
> a
> single request (not necessarily all 40 at once, but with coalescing it is
> likely to be a large number).
> sendMapOutput() will open the file for random reading and then perform an 
> async transfer of the particular portion of this file(). This will 
> theoretically
> happen 6000*40=240000 times which will run the NM out of file descriptors and 
> cause it to crash.
> The algorithm should be refactored a little to not open the fds until they're
> actually needed.
