We have a 7-node hadoop (0.20.2 apache) cluster running pig 0.6 (apache) with elephant-bird (hadoop-gpl). The cluster recently stopped completing jobs while our sysadmin is away on vacation, and we need to get it running again.
Additionally, the work-around for a bug in pig 0.6 is producing a scheduling bottleneck in our cluster, and preventing the cluster from scaling. We would like to upgrade to pig 0.8, and ensure that elephant-bird (and its dependencies) still work in the upgraded environment.
We welcome estimates/bids either for only the repair, or for both the repair and the upgrade.
