Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-6320) FairScheduler:Identifying apps to assign in updateThread
Date Fri, 10 Mar 2017 08:35:04 GMT
Tao Jie created YARN-6320:

             Summary: FairScheduler:Identifying apps to assign in updateThread
                 Key: YARN-6320
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-6320
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Tao Jie

In FairScheduler today, we have 1)UpdateThread that update queue/app status, fairshare, starvation
info, 2)nodeUpdate triggered by NM heartbeat that do the scheduling. When we handle one nodeUpdate,
we will top-down from the root queue to the leafqueues and find the most needy application
to allocate container according to queue's fairshare. Also we should sort children at each
hierarchy level.
My thought is that we have a global sorted {{candidateAppList}} which keeps apps need to assign,
and move the logic that "find app that should allocate resource to" from nodeUpdate to UpdateThread.
In UpdateThread, we find candidate apps to assign and put them into {{candidateAppList}}.
In nodeUpdate, we consume the list and allocate containers to apps. 
As far as I see, we can have 3 benifits:
1, nodeUpdate() is invoked much more frequently than update() in UpdateThread, especially
in a large cluster. As a result we can reduce much unnecessary sorting.
2, It will have better coordination with YARN-5829, we can indicate apps to assign more directly
rather than let nodes find the best apps to assign.
3, It seems to be easier to introduce scheduling restricts such as nodelabel, affinity/anti-affinity
into FS, since we can pre-allocate containers asynchronously.
[~kasha], [~templedf], [~yufeigu] like to hear your thoughts.
