Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-1964) Create Docker analog of the LinuxContainerExecutor in YARN
Date Thu, 24 Apr 2014 23:25:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1964?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13980476#comment-13980476

Junping Du commented on YARN-1964:

bq. I'd suggest this JIRA be renamed: Is it specifically to create a DockerLinuxContainer
? Or is it broader. After all... Docker itself is a "container" and YARN itself is a container,
and YARN can run inside of docker, and Multiple NM's can be launched as docker processes,
and so on... so I think the exact task of this JIRA should be clarified.
Agree with [~ashahab] that we should make this JIRA's scope focus on Docker implementation.
For more broader topics on supporting heterogenous containers in runtime, [~leftnoteasy],
[~jayunit100], how about we go further discussion in a separated JIRA? - I just filed YARN-1983
for that.

> Docker (https://www.docker.io/) is, increasingly, a very popular container technology.
> In context of YARN, the support for Docker will provide a very elegant solution to allow
applications to *package* their software into a Docker container (entire Linux file system
incl. custom versions of perl, python etc.) and use it as a blueprint to launch all their
YARN containers with requisite software environment. This provides both consistency (all YARN
containers will have the same software environment) and isolation (no interference with whatever
is installed on the physical machine).
