Subject Re: Howto kill a container?
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 19:32:52 GMT
Hi Chris

The AM should send a stop container request to the ContainerManager to kill the container
in question. This will trigger a kill event to the running container and eventually, when
the AM talks to the RM, the killed container would be part of the completed containers list
in allocate response.

RM doesn’t ACTUALLY release the container until the container stops. I assume that there’s
a way for the AM to to tell the RM to tell the NM to kill the container, or that there’s
a way for the container to get its current state, and see if it’s been released so that
it can shutdown gracefully.
