Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-4495) Workflow Application Master in YARN
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2012 15:44:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4495?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13428194#comment-13428194

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on MAPREDUCE-4495:

I don't think PaaS and Workflow-AM are similar. 

Workflow-AM aims to provide a AM can that can run multiple MR jobs and do intra-AM processing
all from the same AM. This would be enough for projects that typically run multiple MR jobs
as single unit of processing, like Pig/Hive/Sqoop/Oozie. Workflow-AM will need to tap into
the MapReduce AM private classes, as the intention is to fully leverage what has been done
already. And most likely will require changes in the MapReduce AM, such as making it thread-safe
and multi-mr-job safe (which I believe it is not the case today). 

Because of this, I think that it belongs in MapReduce. And having it outside, at least during
its inception, it will make much more difficult its development.

Said this, I don't have any issue, quite the opposite, once we finalize the initial implementation
to see how it can be generalized and move out.

>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha
>            Reporter: Bo Wang

> It is useful to have a workflow application master, which will be capable of running
a DAG of jobs. The workflow client submits a DAG request to the AM and then the AM will manage
the life cycle of this application in terms of requesting the needed resources from the RM,
and starting, monitoring and retrying the application's individual tasks.
> Compared to running Oozie with the current MapReduce Application Master, these are some
of the advantages:
>  - Less number of consumed resources, since only one application master will be spawned
for the whole workflow.
>  - Reuse of resources, since the same resources can be used by multiple consecutive jobs
in the workflow (no need to request/wait for resources for every individual job from the central
>  - More optimization opportunities in terms of collective resource requests.
>  - Optimization opportunities in terms of rewriting and composing jobs in the workflow
(e.g. pushing down Mappers).
>  - This Application Master can be reused/extended by higher systems like Pig and hive
to provide an optimized way of running their workflows.
