Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-1775) Create SMAPBasedProcessTree to get PSS information
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2014 18:29:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1775?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13939599#comment-13939599

Chris Nauroth commented on YARN-1775:

bq. Tested with branch 2.4.0 on 20 node cluster.

Hi, [~rajesh.balamohan].  Can you please share more details on this testing?  What would be
particularly interesting is pushing a cluster close to the limits of its memory capacity and
then observing the differences in behavior between {{ProcfsBasedProcessTree}} and {{SMAPBasedProcessTree}}.
 The argument is that {{ProcfsBasedProcessTree}} is effectively over-conservative and may
kill containers too quickly.  Did this testing show that {{SMAPBasedProcessTree}} was able
to keep more containers running?  If so, were there any negative performance impacts observed?
 (I wondered about the potential for introducing more thrashing as a side effect of killing
containers less quickly.)

Thanks for taking on this effort!

of PSS for computing the memory usage.
