Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-1040) De-link container life cycle from the process and add ability to execute multiple processes in the same long-lived container
Date Tue, 12 Nov 2013 23:29:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1040?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13820645#comment-13820645
] 

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on YARN-1040:
------------------------------------------

[~bikassaha], a minor twist to the outlined approach is that we don't need flag, just a NULL
{{ContainerLaunchContext}} and that this context is not NULL on {{startContainer()}} the container
is meant to have 1 process only and finishes on process completion. This would preserve backwards
compatibility. Only when the startContainer has a NULL context, there could be multiple processes.
Makes sense?

> The AM should be able to exec >1 process in a container, rather than have the NM automatically
release the container when the single process exits.
> This would let an AM restart a process on the same container repeatedly, which for HBase
would offer locality on a restarted region server.
> We may also want the ability to exec multiple processes in parallel, so that something
could be run in the container while a long-lived process was already running. This can be
useful in monitoring and reconfiguring the long-lived process, as well as shutting it down.
