Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-2151) FairScheduler option for global preemption within hierarchical queues
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2014 21:25:02 GMT
Andrey Stepachev created YARN-2151:

             Summary: FairScheduler option for global preemption within hierarchical queues
                 Key: YARN-2151
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-2151
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: fairscheduler
            Reporter: Andrey Stepachev

FairScheduler has hierarchical queues, but fair share calculation and 
preemption still works withing a limited range and effectively still nonhierarchical.

This patch solves this incompleteness in two aspects:

1. Currently MinShare is not propagated to upper queue, that leads to
fair share calculation ignores all Min Shares in deeper queues. 
Lets take an example
(implemented as test case TestFairScheduler#testMinShareInHierarchicalQueues)
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<queue name="queue1">
  <maxResources>10240mb, 10vcores</maxResources>
  <queue name="big"/>
  <queue name="sub1">
    <queue name="sub11">
      <minResources>6192mb, 6vcores</minResources>
  <queue name="sub2">
Then bigApp started within queue1.big with 10x1GB containers.
That effectively eats all maximum allowed resources for queue1.
Subsequent requests for app1 (queue1.sub1.sub11) and 
app2 (queue1.sub2) (5x1GB each) will wait for free resources. 
Take a note, that sub11 has min share requirements for 6x1GB.
Without given patch fair share will be calculated with no knowledge 
about min share requirements and app1 and app2 will get equal 
number of containers.
With the patch resources will split according to min share ( in test
it will be 5 for app1 and 1 for app2)
That behaviour controlled by the same parameter as ‘globalPreemtion’,
but that can be changed easily.
Implementation is a bit awkward, but seems that method for min share
recalculation can be exposed as public or protected api and constructor
in FSQueue can call it before using minShare getter. But right now
current implementation with nulls should work too.

2. Preemption doesn’t works between queues on different level for the
queues hierarchy. Moreover, it is not possible to override various 
parameters for children queues. 
This patch adds parameter ‘globalPreemption’, which enables global 
preemption algorithm modifications.
In a nutshell patch adds function shouldAttemptPreemption(queue),
which can calculate usage for nested queues, and if queue with usage more 
that specified threshold is found, preemption can be triggered.
Aggregated minShare does the rest of work and preemption will work
as expected within hierarchy of queues with different MinShare/MaxShare
specifications on different levels.

Test case TestFairScheduler#testGlobalPreemption depicts how it works.
One big app gets resources above its fair share and app1 has a declared
min share. On submission code finds that starvation and preempts enough
containers to give enough room to run app1.
