Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-1226) ipv4 and ipv6 affect job data locality
Date Mon, 23 Sep 2013 14:50:02 GMT
Kaibo Zhou created YARN-1226:

             Summary: ipv4 and ipv6 affect job data locality
                 Key: YARN-1226
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1226
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: capacityscheduler
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0-beta, 2.0.0-alpha, 0.23.3
            Reporter: Kaibo Zhou
            Priority: Minor

When I run a mapreduce job which use TableInputFormat to scan a hbase table on yarn cluser
with 140+ nodes, I consistently get very low data locality (capacity scheduler) around 0~10%.

Hbase and hadoop are integrated in the cluster with NodeManager, DataNode and HRegionServer
run on the same node.

The reason of low data locality is: most machines in the cluster uses IPV6, few machines use
IPV4. NodeManager use "InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostName()
" to get the host name, but the return result of this function depends on IPV4 or IPV6, see

On machines with ipv4, NodeManager get hostName as: search042097.sqa.cm4.site.net
But on machines with ipv6, NodeManager get hostName as: search042097.sqa.cm4
if run with IPv6 disabled, -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true, then returns search042097.sqa.cm4.site.net.

For the mapred job which scan hbase table, the InputSplit contains node locations of FQDN,
e.g. search042097.sqa.cm4.site.net. Because in hbase, the RegionServers' hostnames are allocated
by HMaster. HMaster communicate with RegionServers and get the region server's host name use
java NIO: clientChannel.socket().getInetAddress().getHostName().
Also see the startup log of region server:

13:06:21,200 INFO org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.HRegionServer: Master passed us hostname
to use. Was=search042024.sqa.cm4, Now=search042024.sqa.cm4.site.net

As you can see, most machines in the Yarn cluster with IPV6 get the short hostname, but hbase
always get the full hostname, so the Host cannot matched (see RMContainerAllocator::assignToMap).This
can lead to poor locality.

After I use java.net.preferIPv4Stack to force IPv4 in yarn, I get 70+% data locality in the
