Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-2313) Livelock can occur in FairScheduler when there are lots of running apps
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2014 09:27:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-2313?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14071547#comment-14071547

Karthik Kambatla commented on YARN-2313:

Sorry for coming in late here. Didn't see this before.

I think we need a better solution here. Otherwise, clusters will continue to run into this.

One simple way to address this could be to wait {{updateInterval}} ms after finishing an iteration
of update-thread before starting the next iteration. We should do something similar for the
continuous thread as well.

> Observed livelock on FairScheduler when there are lots entry in queue. After my investigating
code, following case can occur:
> 1. {{update()}} called by UpdateThread takes longer times than UPDATE_INTERVAL(500ms)
if there are lots queue.
> 2. UpdateThread goes busy loop.
> 3. Other threads(AllocationFileReloader, ResourceManager$SchedulerEventDispatcher) can
wait forever.
