Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-4304) Deadlock where all containers are held by ApplicationMasters should be prevented

Herman Chen created MAPREDUCE-4304:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Deadlock where all containers are held by ApplicationMasters should
be prevented
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-4304
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4304
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: mrv2, resourcemanager
    Affects Versions: 0.23.1
            Reporter: Herman Chen


In my test cluster with 4 NodeManagers, each with only ~1.6G container memory, when a burst
of jobs, e.g. >10, are concurrently submitted, it is likely that 4 jobs are accepted, with
4 ApplicationMasters allocated, but then the jobs block each other indefinitely because they're
all waiting to allocate more containers.

Note that the problem is not limited to tiny cluster like this.  As long as the number of
jobs being submitted is greater than the rate jobs finish, it may run into a vicious cycle
where more and more containers are locked up by ApplicationMasters.
