      While developing Pig on Tez, I found it's hard to debug DAG failures due to lack of diagnostic information. Currently, the MR Pig client reports the backend error message when there is a job failure. For example, if I have a UDF that throws a runtime exception, I will see the following stack trace in the front-end log file-

      Pig Stack Trace
      ERROR 1066: Unable to open iterator for alias b. Backend error : FAIL IT NOW!
      Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: FAIL IT NOW!

      Basically, I'd like to do something similar in Tez Pig.

      If there are multiple failed vertices and tasks, it may be not possible to propagate all the backend exceptions to the frontend. But would it be possible to propagate some of first ones at least? Perhaps one per failed vertex? Given that DAGStatus.getDiagnostics() returns a list of Strings, it seems feasible.
