Subject [jira] Created: (MAPREDUCE-2108) Allow TaskScheduler manage number slots on TaskTrackers
Date Mon, 04 Oct 2010 21:08:33 GMT
Allow TaskScheduler manage number slots on TaskTrackers

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-2108
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2108
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: contrib/capacity-sched, contrib/fair-share
    Affects Versions: 0.22.0
            Reporter: Scott Chen
            Assignee: Scott Chen
             Fix For: 0.22.0

Currently the map slots and reduce slots are managed by TaskTracker configuration.
To change the task tracker slots, we need to restart the TaskTrackers.
Also, for a non-uniform cluster, we have to deploy different sets of configuration.

Now JobTracker holds the CPU and memory status of TaskTrackers (MAPREDUCE-1218).
So it makes sense to just let JobTracker.taskScheduler decided the number of slots on each
This way we can
1. Change the number of slots dynamically without restarting TaskTracker
2. Use different number of slots based on the resource of a TaskTracker

To achieve this, we need to change the logic that we use totalMapSlots and totalReduceSlots
in JobTracker.
I think they are used in WebUI and speculativeCap.

We will need to make JobTracker calculate these numbers from TaskScheduler and TaskTrackerStatus.
TaskScheduler and TaskTracker can both hold their maximum slots. We pick the smaller one.
