Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-4768) Dynamic Priority Scheduler that allows queue shares to be controlled dynamically by a currency
Date Tue, 07 Apr 2009 18:10:13 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4768?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Thomas Sandholm updated HADOOP-4768:

    Attachment: HADOOP-4768-2.patch

Fixed up scheduler to be standalone and not rely on capacity of fairshare schedulers. Implemented
interfaces recommended by Owen and Arun but kept them in contrib for now to avoid changing
core classes.  A new design doc is also available at: http://tycoon.hpl.hp.com/~sandholm/DynamicPriorityHadoop.pdf

> Contribution based on work presented at the Hadoop User Group meeting in Santa Clara
in September and the HadoopCamp in New Orleans in November.
> From README:
> This package implements dynamic priority scheduling for MapReduce jobs.
> Overview
> --------
> The purpose of this scheduler is to allow users to increase and decrease
> their queue priorities continuosly to meet the requirements of their
> current workloads. The scheduler is aware of the current demand and makes
> it more expensive to boost the priority under peak usage times. Thus
> users who move their workload to low usage times are rewarded with
> discounts. Priorities can only be boosted within a limited quota.
> All users are given a quota or a budget which is deducted periodically
> in configurable accounting intervals. How much of the budget is 
> deducted is determined by a per-user spending rate, which may
> be modified at any time directly by the user. The cluster slots 
> share allocated to a particular user is computed as that users
> spending rate over the sum of all spending rates in the same accounting
> period.
> Configuration
> -------------
> This scheduler has been designed as a meta-scheduler on top of 
> existing MapReduce schedulers, which are responsible for enforcing
> shares computed by the dynamic scheduler in the cluster. Thie configuration
> of this MapReduce scheduler does not have to change when deploying
> the dynamic scheduler.
> Hadoop Configuration (e.g. hadoop-site.xml):
> mapred.jobtracker.taskScheduler      This needs to be set to 
>                                      org.apache.hadoop.mapred.DynamicPriorityScheduler
>                                      to use the dynamic scheduler.
> mapred.queue.names                   All queues managed by the dynamic scheduler must
be listed
>                                      here (comma separated no spaces)
> Scheduler Configuration:
> mapred.dynamic-scheduler.scheduler   The Java path of the MapReduce scheduler that should
>                                      enforce the allocated shares.
>                                      Has been tested with:
>                                      org.apache.hadoop.mapred.FairScheduler
>                                      and
>                                      org.apache.hadoop.mapred.CapacityTaskScheduler
> mapred.dynamic-scheduler.budgetfile  The full OS path of the file from which the
>                                      budgets are read. The synatx of this file is:
>                                      <queueName> <budget>
>                                      separated by newlines where budget can be specified
>                                      as a Java float
> mapred.dynamic-scheduler.spendfile   The full OS path of the file from which the
>                                      user/queue spending rate is read. It allows
>                                      the queue name to be placed into the path
>                                      at runtime, e.g.:
>                                      /home/%QUEUE%/.spending
>                                      Only the user(s) who submit jobs to the
>                                      specified queue should have write access
>                                      to this file. The syntax of the file is
>                                      just:
>                                      <spending rate>
>                                      where the spending rate is specified as a
>                                      Java float. If no spending rate is specified
>                                      the rate defaults to budget/1000.
> mapred.dynamic-scheduler.alloc       Allocation interval, when the scheduler rereads
>                                      spending rates and recalculates the cluster shares.
>                                      Specified as seconds between allocations.
>                                      Default is 20 seconds.
> mapred.dynamic-scheduler.budgetset   Boolean which is true if the budget should be deducted

>                                      by the scheduler and the updated budget written
to the
>                                      budget file. Default is true. Setting this to false
>                                      useful if there is a tool that controls budgets
>                                      spending rates externally to the scheduler.
> Runtime Configuration:
> mapred.scheduler.shares              The shares that should be allocated to the specified
>                                      The configuration property is a comma separated
list of
>                                      strings where the odd positioned elements are the

>                                      queue names and the even positioned elements are
the shares
>                                      as Java floats of the preceding queue name. It is
>                                      for all the queues atomically in each allocation
pass. MapReduce
>                                      schedulers such as the Fair and CapacityTask schedulers
>                                      are expected to read from this property periodically.
>                                      Example property value: "queue1,45.0,queue2,55.0"
