Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-1021) Yarn Scheduler Load Simulator
Date Tue, 17 Sep 2013 18:18:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1021?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13769765#comment-13769765

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on YARN-1021:

Wei, patch looks good, though some NITs that should be taken care of:

* remove LICENSE.txt/NOTICE.txt (Hadoop has those at its root)
* all the files in src/main/resources should not be there but in a src/main/sample-conf dir
else the end up in the JAR and may be picked up without the user knowing
* the src/test/data dir should be in src/main/data (as it ends up in the distro)
* the test running the simulation runs for 2 mins, do we need 2 mins or can we make it less?
like 1min or 30secs?
* hadoop-tools-dist/pom.xml, hadoop-sls entry, should not have <version>. there should
be an entry for hadoop-sls with the version in the hadoop-project/pom.xml dependencyManagement
* The slsrunner should set fs.defaultFS=file:/// in the conf used to start the RM, else the
RM will attempt to connect to HDFS.

> The Yarn Scheduler is a fertile area of interest with different implementations, e.g.,
Fifo, Capacity and Fair  schedulers. Meanwhile, several optimizations are also made to improve
scheduler performance for different scenarios and workload. Each scheduler algorithm has its
own set of features, and drives scheduling decisions by many factors, such as fairness, capacity
guarantee, resource availability, etc. It is very important to evaluate a scheduler algorithm
very well before we deploy it in a production cluster. Unfortunately, currently it is non-trivial
to evaluate a scheduling algorithm. Evaluating in a real cluster is always time and cost consuming,
and it is also very hard to find a large-enough cluster. Hence, a simulator which can predict
how well a scheduler algorithm for some specific workload would be quite useful.
> We want to build a Scheduler Load Simulator to simulate large-scale Yarn clusters and
application loads in a single machine. This would be invaluable in furthering Yarn by providing
a tool for researchers and developers to prototype new scheduler features and predict their
behavior and performance with reasonable amount of confidence, there-by aiding rapid innovation.
> The simulator will exercise the real Yarn ResourceManager removing the network factor
by simulating NodeManagers and ApplicationMasters via handling and dispatching NM/AMs heartbeat
events from within the same JVM.
> To keep tracking of scheduler behavior and performance, a scheduler wrapper will wrap
the real scheduler.
> The simulator will produce real time metrics while executing, including:
> * Resource usages for whole cluster and each queue, which can be utilized to configure
cluster and queue's capacity.
> * The detailed application execution trace (recorded in relation to simulated time),
which can be analyzed to understand/validate the  scheduler behavior (individual jobs turn
around time, throughput, fairness, capacity guarantee, etc).
> * Several key metrics of scheduler algorithm, such as time cost of each scheduler operation
(allocate, handle, etc), which can be utilized by Hadoop developers to find the code spots
and scalability limits.
> The simulator will provide real time charts showing the behavior of the scheduler and
its performance.
> A short demo is available http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6thLi8q0qLE, showing how to
use simulator to simulate Fair Scheduler and Capacity Scheduler.
