Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-799) CgroupsLCEResourcesHandler tries to write to cgroup.procs

Chris Riccomini created YARN-799:
------------------------------------

             Summary: CgroupsLCEResourcesHandler tries to write to cgroup.procs
                 Key: YARN-799
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-799
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Chris Riccomini


The implementation of

bq. ./hadoop-yarn-project/hadoop-yarn/hadoop-yarn-server/hadoop-yarn-server-nodemanager/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/yarn/server/nodemanager/util/CgroupsLCEResourcesHandler.java

Tells the container-executor to write PIDs to cgroup.procs:

  public String getResourcesOption(ContainerId containerId) {
    String containerName = containerId.toString();

    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder("cgroups=");

    if (isCpuWeightEnabled()) {
      sb.append(pathForCgroup(CONTROLLER_CPU, containerName) + "/cgroup.procs");
      sb.append(",");
    }

    if (sb.charAt(sb.length() - 1) == ',') {
      sb.deleteCharAt(sb.length() - 1);
    }

    return sb.toString();
  }

Apparently, this file has not always been writeable:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/116146/
http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1004.1/00536.html
https://lists.linux-foundation.org/pipermail/containers/2009-July/019679.html

The RHEL version of the Linux kernel that I'm using has a CGroup module that has a non-writeable
cgroup.procs file.

bq. $ uname -a
Linux criccomi-ld 2.6.32-131.4.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Jun 10 10:54:26 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64
x86_64 GNU/Linux

As a result, when the container-executor tries to run, it fails with this error message:

bq.    fprintf(LOGFILE, "Failed to write pid %s (%d) to file %s - %s\n",

This is because the executor is given a resource by the CgroupsLCEResourcesHandler that includes
cgroup.procs, which is non-writeable:

bq. $ pwd 
/cgroup/cpu/hadoop-yarn/container_1370986842149_0001_01_000001
$ ls -l
total 0
-r--r--r-- 1 criccomi eng 0 Jun 11 14:43 cgroup.procs
-rw-r--r-- 1 criccomi eng 0 Jun 11 14:43 cpu.rt_period_us
-rw-r--r-- 1 criccomi eng 0 Jun 11 14:43 cpu.rt_runtime_us
-rw-r--r-- 1 criccomi eng 0 Jun 11 14:43 cpu.shares
-rw-r--r-- 1 criccomi eng 0 Jun 11 14:43 notify_on_release
-rw-r--r-- 1 criccomi eng 0 Jun 11 14:43 tasks

I patched CgroupsLCEResourcesHandler to use /tasks instead of /cgroup.procs, and this appears
to have fixed the problem.

I can think of several potential resolutions to this ticket:

1. Ignore the problem, and make people patch YARN when they hit this issue.
2. Write to /tasks instead of /cgroup.procs for everyone
3. Check permissioning on /cgroup.procs prior to writing to it, and fall back to /tasks.
4. Add a config to yarn-site that lets admins specify which file to write to.

Thoughts?
