Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-3098) Report Application status as well as ApplicationMaster status in GetApplicationReportResponse
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2011 04:45:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-3098?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13116145#comment-13116145

Arun C Murthy commented on MAPREDUCE-3098:
------------------------------------------

bq. Apologies if I am giving an impression of creating a storm. But honestly all of this was
thought through earlier end-to-end and I firmly belive that the current states and records
represent the correct abstraction.

Healthy back & forth is good. Helps everyone - don't worry about it.

Seems to me that there are 2 states:
a) State of the AM _attempt_
b) State of the application itself.

Oh, we also have 'diagnostics', more on this later.

So, the crux is: forcing application writers to come up with Strings to describe their state
seems a poor api/abstraction.

Can we do better?

> Currently, an application report received by the client from the RM/ASM for a given application
returns the status of the application master. It does not return the status of the application
i.e. whether that particular job succeeded or failed. 
> The AM status would be one of FINISHED (SUCCEEDED should be renamed to FINISHED as AM
state does not indicate overall success/failure), FAILED or KILLED. 
> The final state sent by the AM to the RM in the FinishApplicationMasterRequest should
be exposed to the client as ApplicationState.
