Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-1039) Add parameter for YARN resource requests to indicate "long lived"
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2015 02:51:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-1039?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14298135#comment-14298135

Chris Douglas commented on YARN-1039:
-------------------------------------

bq. That's not necessarily so, there are some cases where the type of life cycle for an application
is important, for example, when determining whether or not it is open-ended ("service") or
a batch process which entails a notion of progress ("session"), at least for purposes of display.

That's a fair distinction. Would you agree the YARN _scheduler_ should not use detailed information
about progress, task dependencies, or service lifecycles? If an AM registers with a tag that
affects the attributes displayed in dashboards, then issues like YARN-1079 can be resolved
cleanly, as you and Zhijie propose.

Steve has a point about mixed-mode AMs that run both long and short-lived containers (e.g.,
a long-lived service supporting a workflow composed of short tasks). If it's solely for display,
then an enum seems adequate, but I'd like to better understand the use cases.

> A container request could support a new parameter "long-lived". This could be used by
a scheduler that would know not to host the service on a transient (cloud: spot priced) node.
> Schedulers could also decide whether or not to allocate multiple long-lived containers
on the same node
