Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-1197) Support changing resources of an allocated container
Date Thu, 03 Oct 2013 04:08:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1197?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13784803#comment-13784803

Wangda Tan commented on YARN-1197:

Method mentioned by [~sandyr] can solve "cheating" problem in AM side. AM doesn't need tell
RM to decrease container size at all, just tell NM, and let NM telling RM by heartbeat, the
only problem is order of second latency to decrease in scheduler side, shouldn't be a big
And the race problem mentioned by [~bikassaha], I think it should be reasonable, when an AM
request for more resource on a container, it never know when RM will return it back. So AM
may need to use the smaller resource to launch container, this is not harmful to either scheduler
or NM (use less resource is not a problem). After sometime, AM will get allocated resource,
it can tell NM and child process to increase memory quota. Do you agree about this?

>             Project: Hadoop YARN
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: api, nodemanager, resourcemanager
>    Affects Versions: 2.1.0-beta

> Currently, YARN cannot support merge several containers in one node to a big container,
which can make us incrementally ask resources, merge them to a bigger one, and launch our
processes. The user scenario is described in the comments.
