Subject Re: Specifying the host name to launch the Application Master
Date Thu, 22 Nov 2012 14:36:10 GMT
Hi Arun,

I am looking at adding the ability to provide a ResourceRequest so the 
ApplicationMaster can be scheduled by the client in the same way as 
Workers are scheduled by the ApplicationMaster.

I will open a JIRA request for this. I am also working on the patch. 
However, I have some questions about what would be the best way to make 
this happen.

Currently, the request for a certain amount of memory for the 
ApplicationMaster's container seems to be provided by setting the 
Resource in ContainerLaunchContext that is attached to the 
ApplicationSubmissionContext. The Javadoc attached to the getResource() 
call claims the Resource object returned is the resource that is 
allocated to the container. From the Javadoc it appears that this 
Resource object should be the *effect* of allocation rather than the 
request for the allocation.

Would it make sense to add a ResourceRequest setter/getter pair to the 
ApplicationSubmission context that can specify the ask for the resources 
required to run the ApplicationMaster container? In this case what would 
be the role of the Resource object in the ContainerLaunchContext (since 
the ResourceRequest already encapsulates a Resource object within itself)?

I would like to have the Application Master be launched on a particular host (at least while
testing). However, the ContainerLaunchContext interface only accepts a Resource that can specify
the amount of memory needed for the container. I do not see an interface like the ResourceRequest
that allows the specification of a host name to launch the container.
