Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-445) Ability to signal containers
Date Sat, 02 Mar 2013 18:05:13 GMT
Jason Lowe created YARN-445:
-------------------------------

             Summary: Ability to signal containers
                 Key: YARN-445
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-445
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: nodemanager
    Affects Versions: 2.0.4-beta
            Reporter: Jason Lowe


It would be nice if an ApplicationMaster could send signals to contaniers such as SIGQUIT,
SIGUSR1, etc.

For example, in order to replicate the jstack-on-task-timeout feature implemented by MAPREDUCE-1119
in Hadoop 0.21 the NodeManager needs an interface for sending SIGQUIT to a container.  For
that specific feature we could implement it as an additional field in the StopContainerRequest.
 However that would not address other potential features like the ability for an AM to trigger
jstacks on arbitrary tasks *without* killing them.  The latter feature would be a very useful
debugging tool for users who do not have shell access to the nodes.
