Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-73) nodemanager should cleanup running containers when it starts
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2012 02:58:10 GMT

Bikas Saha commented on YARN-73:
--------------------------------

Pids might get reused. so we need to guard against that.
Is there any generic Linux OS mechanism that would make the running containers die when the
NM dies? e.g. On Windows, NM can use JobObject's to make this happen.

> Currently the nodemanager doesn't cleanup running containers when it gets restarted.
This can cause containers to get lost and stick around forever. We've seen this happen multiple
times when the RM is restarted. When the RM is brought back up, it doesn't know about what
was running on the cluster, it tells the NMs to reboot and when the NM reboots it loses what
it had running. If there are any containers that are behaving badly there is no one left that
knows about them to kill them.
> We should kill any running containers when the nodemanager is being started.  Note that
when the NM is being brought up it needs to somehow figure out what containers were running
and be sure it doesn't kill anything it shouldn't.
> Note, we should also try to kill any running containers when the node manager is shutting
down (jira 4213 was filed for this).
> This might change a bit when RM restart is implemented if tasks can actually survive
across RM/NM being rebooted, but that can be addressed at that point.
