Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-2175) Container localization has no timeouts and tasks can be stuck there for a long time
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2014 19:24:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-2175?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14049223#comment-14049223

Anubhav Dhoot commented on YARN-2175:

I should clarify the AM can kill this container manually but each AM will have to implement
this logic to detect when localization takes longer and kill when its taking too long. Updating
We can make it much simpler for administrators and AM writers by having an automatic way to
mitigate this. The NodeManager knows each state of the container. Instead of having a back
and forth between AM and NM, it will be easier if we just let this be done by NM. We can start
with a configurable timeout with a reasonable default. In future we can add ability in the
AM to override this during the container request.
Lemme know what you guys think.

> There are no timeouts that can be used to limit the time taken by various container startup
operations. Localization for example could take a long time and there is no automated way
to kill an task if its stuck in these states. These may have nothing to do with the task itself
and could be an issue within the platform.
> Ideally there should be configurable limits for various states within the NodeManager
to limit various states. The RM does not care about most of these and its only between AM
and the NM. We can start by making these global configurable defaults and in future we can
make it fancier by letting AM override them in the start container request. 
> This jira will be used to limit localization time and we can open others if we feel we
need to limit other operations.
