Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-322) Need a job control utility to submit and monitor a group of jobs which have DAG dependency

paul sutter commented on HADOOP-322:
------------------------------------


Would Ant solve the problem, if a few extensions were developed? (such as an extentsion to
check for completion metadata in a .completed file)?

> In my applications, some jobs depend on the outputs of other jobs. Therefore, job dependency
forms a DAG. A job is ready to run if and only if it does not have any dependency or all the
jobs it depends are finished successfully. To help schedule and monitor a group of jobs like
that, I am thinking of implementing a utility that:
> 	- accept jobs with dependency specification
>       - monitor job status
>       - submit jobs when they are ready
> With such a utility, the application can construct its jobs, specify their dependency
and then hand the jobs to the utility class. The utility takes care of the details of job
submission.
> I'll post my design skech for comments/suggestion.
> Eventually, I'll submit a patch for the utility.
