Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-417) Add a poller that allows the AM to receive notifications when it is assigned containers
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2013 18:14:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-417?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13586070#comment-13586070
] 

Sandy Ryza commented on YARN-417:
---------------------------------

Sorry, good point.  The patch is a work in progress and any feedback, especially from those
who have built AMs, would be greatly appreciated.  The patch defines a simple Heartbeater,
which spawns a thread to sends heartbeats to the AM at a user-defined interval.  The user
uses AMRMClient to submit its resource requests, and the Heartbeater uses it to ship off these
requests on the next heartbeat.

The Heartbeater takes a user-implemented AllocationListener (maybe need a better name?), which
supports three callbacks:
allocationResponse - called on every heartbeat with the full response from the RM
containersCompleted - called when the RM returns containers completed with a list of ContainerStatuses
containersAllocated - called when the RM returns containers for use with a list of Containers

I hope that makes things a little clearer.

> Writing AMs would be easier for some if they did not have to handle heartbeating to the
RM on their own.
