Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-2466) Umbrella issue for Yarn launched Docker Containers
Date Tue, 20 Jan 2015 23:27:37 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-2466?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14284637#comment-14284637

Max commented on YARN-2466:
---------------------------

It would be helpful but it should be switchable. It should be possible to activate for debugin.
Turning it off will increase security for production systems.

> 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).
> In addition to software isolation mentioned above, Docker containers will provide resource,
network, and user-namespace isolation. 
> Docker provides resource isolation through cgroups, similar to LinuxContainerExecutor.
This prevents one job from taking other jobs resource(memory and CPU) on the same hadoop cluster.

> User-namespace isolation will ensure that the root on the container is mapped an unprivileged
user on the host. This is currently being added to Docker.
> Network isolation will ensure that one user’s network traffic is completely isolated
from another user’s network traffic. 
> Last but not the least, the interaction of Docker and Kerberos will have to be worked
out. These Docker containers must work in a secure hadoop environment.
