Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3479) Implement configuration items useful for Hadoop resource manager (v1)
Date Mon, 16 Jun 2008 07:01:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3479?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12605208#action_12605208

Hemanth Yamijala commented on HADOOP-3479:

I looked at HADOOP-24 in detail. IMO, I feel there are 2 different issues we are discussing
in these two JIRAs:

- What HADOOP-24 described and concluded was to provide a way to read Configuration from multiple
data sources, including files, LDAP etc. and separate the issue of filling up Configuration
from a source (aka ConfSource approach) from answering queries of Configuration itself, which
is the Configuration clas.
- What we are trying to evaluate here is whether the configuration format (rather than it's
source) be made generic enough to support a very generalized structure of configuration -
multiple hierarchies, named groups, etc.

For doing a good job of the latter, IMO, we should just try and define a format that fits
the current Hadoop configuration and the new Resource Manager configuration, if at all. Trying
to build something too generic without fully understanding what else is required may not work
at this level.

Even there, I feel like going with my original proposal of a separate configuration for the
resource manager part. We are still figuring out with how the resource management functionality
all turns out. If our attempts work well, then we can always refactor to make the Configuration
class capable of handling both formats. Then we can make the ResourceManagerConf I defined
in the patch a sub-class of the main Configuration class, and reuse the code.

> HADOOP-3421 lists requirements for a new resource manager for Hadoop. Implementation
for these will require support for new configuration items in Hadoop. This JIRA is to define
such configuration, and track it's implementation.
