When I ran the gridmix 2 benchmark load on a fresh cluster of 500 nodes with hadoop trunk,
the gridmix load, consisting of 202 map/reduce jobs of various sizes, completed in 32 minutes.
Then I ran the same set of the jobs on the same cluster, yhey completed in 43 minutes.
When I ran them the third times, it took (almost) forever — the job tracker became non-responsive.
The job tracker's heap size was set to 2GB.
The cluster is configured to keep up to 500 jobs in memory.
The job tracker kept one cpu busy all the time. Look like it was due to GC.
I believe the release 0.18/0.19 have the similar behavior.
I believe 0.18 and 0.18 also have the similar behavior.
