Task controller may not set permissions for a task cleanup attempt's log directory

      Hide
      Fixed initialization of a task-cleanup attempt's log directory by setting correct permissions via task-controller. Added new log4j properties hadoop.tasklog.iscleanup and log4j.appender.TLA.isCleanup to conf/log4j.properties. Changed the userlogs for a task-cleanup attempt to go into its own directory instead of the original attempt directory. This is an incompatible change as old userlogs of cleanup attempt-dirs before this release will no longer be visible.

      Description

      Task controller uses the INITIALIZE_TASK command to initialize task attempt and task log directories. For cleanup tasks, task attempt directories are named as task-attempt-id.cleanup. But log directories do not have the .cleanup suffix. The task controller is not aware of this distinction and tries to set permissions for log directories named task-attempt-id.cleanup. This is a NO-OP. Typically the task cleanup runs on the same node that ran the original task attempt as well. So, the task log directories are already properly initialized. However, the task cleanup can run on a node that has not run the original task attempt. In that case, the initialization would not happen and this could result in the cleanup task failing.
