Do anyone have any idea why this happens? The same job runs perfectly well on linux machines. And, after "Job failed" happens, the whole Hadoop cluster stops responding.

My MacOS version is 10.5.6.

EDIT The same result for hadoop-0.20.1

Best Solution

I googled for it and the same error (at the exact same line) has happened before. Read about it here and here.

The second link suggests the following:

  • Delete conf/log4j.properties to see a detailed report
  • Try to increase heap memory (using -Xms and -Xmx switches)
