Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-45) Scheduler feedback to AM to release containers
Date Thu, 11 Apr 2013 14:07:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-45?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13628950#comment-13628950

Carlo Curino commented on YARN-45:

Agreed on a single message, where the semantics is:
1) if both Set<ContainerID> and ResourceRequest are specified, than it is what said
(they overlap and you have to give me back at least the resources I ask otherwise these containers
are at risk to getting killed)
2) if only Set<ContinaerID> is specified is the "stricter" semantics of I want these
containers back and nothing else.
3) if only ResourceRequest is specified the semantics is "please give me back this many resources"
without binding what containers are at risk (this might be good for policies that do not want
to think about containers unless it is really time to kill them).

Does this work for you? Seems to capture the combination of what we proposed so far.

> The ResourceManager strikes a balance between cluster utilization and strict enforcement
of resource invariants in the cluster. Individual allocations of containers must be reclaimed-
or reserved- to restore the global invariants when cluster load shifts. In some cases, the
ApplicationMaster can respond to fluctuations in resource availability without losing the
work already completed by that task (MAPREDUCE-4584). Supplying it with this information would
be helpful for overall cluster utilization [1]. To this end, we want to establish a protocol
for the RM to ask the AM to release containers.
