Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-218) Distiguish between "failed" and "killed" app attempts
Date Fri, 30 Nov 2012 11:41:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-218?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13507278#comment-13507278

Bikas Saha commented on YARN-218:

Comment from YARN-230
bq. We also need to change the AM retry default to > 1. Otherwise, even with RM restart
enabled, the restarted attempts will fail because the previous AM will delete job files. What
is your suggestion for that?
bq. I think this is where the killed/failed distinction comes in. If the app attempt was killed
(because the RM died), then the app will be retried since the first attempt didn't count (from
the point of view of yarn.resourcemanager.am.max-retries). This should be taken care of in
YARN-218 - does that sound OK to you?
This would mean that the AM needs to be notified about it being the last retry from the RM.
Currently, the AM reads the info from config and independently makes that decision. This is
a problem because if the am.retries is set to 1 then even if the RM does not consider the
last attempt as bad, the AM itself will cleanup job data because it thinks its the last retry.

> A "failed" app attempt is one that failed due to an error in the user program, as opposed
to one that was "killed" by the system. Like in MapReduce task attempts, we should distinguish
the two so that killed attempts do not count against the number of retries (yarn.resourcemanager.am.max-retries).
