Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-1404) Add support for unmanaged containers
Date Thu, 14 Nov 2013 02:13:21 GMT

Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli commented on YARN-1404:
-----------------------------------------------

On top of what I said, want to say this: Containers being processes is a fundamental assumption
in all of YARN. If you want to change that assumption, you better be sure of the requirements
- it has far reaching repercussions - both in terms of past/present code and future design
- it's not just putting in a flag here and another one there.

> Currently a container allocation requires to start a container process with the corresponding
NodeManager's node.
> For applications that need to use the allocated resources out of band from Yarn this
means that a dummy container process must be started.
> Impala/Llama is an example of such application which is currently starting a 'sleep 10y'
(10 years) process as the container process. And the resource capabilities are used out of
by and the Impala process collocated in the node. The Impala process ensures the processing
associated to that resources do not exceed the capabilities of the container. Also, if the
container is lost/preempted/killed, Impala stops using the corresponding resources.
> In addition, in the case of Llama, the current requirement of having a container process,
gets complicates when hard resource enforcement (memory -ContainersMonitor- or cpu -via cgroups-)
is enabled because Impala/Llama request resources with CPU and memory independently of each
other. Some requests are CPU only and others are memory only. Unmanaged containers solve this
problem as there is no underlying process with zero CPU or zero memory.
