Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3698) Implement access control for submitting jobs to queues in the JobTracker
Date Tue, 19 Aug 2008 17:27:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3698?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12623741#action_12623741

Hemanth Yamijala commented on HADOOP-3698:

Thinking bit more about this, I am wondering where the responsibility of managing ACLs should
be. There seem to be two choices:
- In the JobTracker: In this approach, the jobtracker manages queues which will have common
configuration like names, ACLs (possibly the only two common ones for now). In addition, different
schedulers could have specific properties for queues - for e.g. HADOOP-3445 has capacities,
user limits etc. There should be a way to associate the queues defined in the job tracker
with their properties in a scheduler.
- In the scheduler: In this approach, we treat queues as being related to schedulers. The
jobtracker would delegate the verification of ACLs to the scheduler instance it is configured
with. This approach means that something like the {{verifyAccess}} API, along with the {{QueueOperation}}
enum would be defined in the {{TaskScheduler}} interface. Since different schedulers may want
to benefit from the same verification mechanism, we could build the verification logic as
a separate utility class.

I am thinking that the second option is better. Logically queues do seem to be related closer
to schedulers. Comments ?

> HADOOP-3445 implements multiple queues in the JobTracker as part of the new resource
manager for Hadoop (HADOOP-3421). There needs to be a mechanism to control who can submit
jobs to a specified queue. This JIRA is for tracking the requirements, approach and implementation
for the same.
