No problem :) Also worth noting for anyone listening on that this feature is
not in 0.20.1 - it's been backported into CDH. It will arrive in 0.21.

Todd from Cloudera solved this for me on their company's forum.

Thanks, Todd!

Greetings, Hadoop Fans:

I'm attempting to use the timeout feature of the Fair Scheduler (using
Cloudera's most recently released distribution 0.20.1+152-1), but without
success. I'm using the following configs:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="configuration.xsl"?>



and /etc/hadoop/conf/pools.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<pool name="realtime">
<pool name="default">

but a job in the realtime pool fails to interrupt a job running in the
default queue (waited for > 15 minutes). Is there something wrong with my
configs? Or is there anything in the logs that would be useful for
debugging? (I've only found a "successfully configured fairscheduler"
comment in the jobtracker log upon starting up the daemon.)

Help would be extremely appreciated!
