Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-575) ContainerManager APIs should be user accessible
Date Fri, 26 Apr 2013 00:46:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-575?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13642445#comment-13642445

Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli commented on YARN-575:

I don't think we really want the APIs to be user-accessible by opening up NM itself to the

 - should only be called by the AM.

 - Today these are only callable by the AM which launches containers - which is bad of course.
Once YARN-613 is done, we will use the AMToken for authentication to the NM, so any AM can
talk to a NM irrespective of whether it launched containers or not.
 - If user really wants to stop a container, or get a container-status, we can add this as
an RM API - RM has enough information to tell the users - should we go that way?

>             Project: Hadoop YARN
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: nodemanager
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.4-alpha
>            Reporter: Siddharth Seth
>            Priority: Critical
> Auth for ContainerManager is based on the containerId being accessed - since this is
what is used to launch containers (There's likely another jira somewhere to change this to
not be containerId based).
> What this also means is the API is effectively not usable with kerberos credentials.
> Also, it should be possible to use this API with some generic tokens (RMDelegation?),
instead of with Container specific tokens.
