Subject:Help with LeaseExpiredException
From:Michael Stack (

Dear Hadoopers:

I'm using hadoop 0.5.0 (My job is a derivative of the nutch fetch job). I've had success in the past with older versions of hadoop but now jobs keep failing because one of the reduces invariably encounters 4 instances of the below:

org.apache.hadoop.dfs.LeaseExpiredException: No lease on
/user/stack/nla/2005-outputs/segments/20060920054847-nla2005/crawl_fetch/part-00018/data at org.apache.hadoop.dfs.FSNamesystem.getAdditionalBlock( at org.apache.hadoop.dfs.NameNode.addBlock( at sun.reflect.GeneratedMethodAccessor16.invoke(Unknown Source) at
sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke( at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke( at org.apache.hadoop.ipc.RPC$ at org.apache.hadoop.ipc.Server$

at org.apache.hadoop.ipc.Client$

I've been playing making the jobs smaller in size -- shrinking from multi-day to single-day, and on down -- but they continue to fail with the above. I was going to try the Konstantin suggestion from here -- -- lowering the ipc timeout down to about 20 seconds from 60 but am a little worried that'll provoke issues elsewhere.

Was wondering if anyone else is running into this issue or if pointers on things to try.

Thanks, St.Ack
