Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-896) Roll up for long lived YARN
Date Mon, 26 Aug 2013 17:39:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-896?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13750288#comment-13750288

Chris Riccomini commented on YARN-896:

bq. Because many of these systems roll their logs to avoid filling up disks we will probably
need a protocol of some sort for the container to communicate with the Node Manager when logs
are ready to be processed. 

Somewhat related, and a random thought: Samza is currently piping stdout and stderr to files
when it sets its AM and container commands (... 1>logs/stdout 2>logs/stderr). These
files never get rolled, and they can get very big for long-lived processes (10s-100s of gigs).
We encourage using a logging system (log4j) to handle this stuff, but there are cases where
the recommended use is not followed (sigh :)).

What do you guys think about tweaking the NM to consume the STDOUT/STDERR streams from the
ProcessBuilder when it executes AM/container commands, writing them to stdout/stderr files,
and rolling them periodically (e.g. daily)?
