      ReduceTask Heap JVM Shuffle

      Description

      In hadoop-0.20.2, hadoop-1.0.3 or other versions, reducer's shuffle buffer size cannot exceed 2048MB (i.e., Integer.MAX_VALUE). This is reasonable for 32bit JVM.
      But for 64bit JVM, although reducer's JVM size can be set more than 2048MB (e.g., mapred.child.java.opts=-Xmx4000m), the heap size used for shuffle buffer is at most "2048MB * maxInMemCopyUse (default 0.7)" not "4000MB * maxInMemCopyUse".

      So the pointed piece of code in ReduceTask.java needs modification for 64bit JVM.
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      private final long maxSize;
      private final long maxSingleShuffleLimit;

      private long size = 0;

      private Object dataAvailable = new Object();
      private long fullSize = 0;
      private int numPendingRequests = 0;
      private int numRequiredMapOutputs = 0;
      private int numClosed = 0;
      private boolean closed = false;

      public ShuffleRamManager(Configuration conf) throws IOException {
      final float maxInMemCopyUse =
      conf.getFloat("mapred.job.shuffle.input.buffer.percent", 0.70f);
      if (maxInMemCopyUse > 1.0 || maxInMemCopyUse < 0.0)

      { throw new IOException("mapred.job.shuffle.input.buffer.percent" + maxInMemCopyUse); }

      // Allow unit tests to fix Runtime memory
      --> maxSize = (int)(conf.getInt("mapred.job.reduce.total.mem.bytes",
      --> (int)Math.min(Runtime.getRuntime().maxMemory(), Integer.MAX_VALUE))
      --> * maxInMemCopyUse);
      maxSingleShuffleLimit = (long)(maxSize * MAX_SINGLE_SHUFFLE_SEGMENT_FRACTION);
      LOG.info("ShuffleRamManager: MemoryLimit=" + maxSize +
      ", MaxSingleShuffleLimit=" + maxSingleShuffleLimit);
      }
