Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-3984) Rethink event column key issue

Zhijie Shen commented on YARN-3984:
-----------------------------------

[~vrushalic], thanks for picking it up. The aforementioned cases are definitely good to support,
while the current query we want to support now (in YARN-3051 and YARN-3049) is to retrieve
all events belonging to an entity (e.g. application, attempt, container and etc.). With this
basic query, we can easily distill the details that happen to the entity, such as the diagnostic
msg of the kill event. In this case, the most efficient way is to put timestamp even before
the event ID, so that we don't need to order the events in memory.

In addition to the key composition, I find another significant problem with the event store
schema. If the event doesn't contain any info, it will be ignored then. And we cannot always
guarantee user will put something into info. For example, user may define a KILL event without
any diagnostic msg.

> Currently, the event column key is event_id?info_key?timestamp, which is not so friendly
to fetching all the events of an entity and sorting them in a chronologic order. IMHO, timestamp?event_id?info_key
may be a better key schema. I open this jira to continue the discussion about it which was
commented on YARN-3908.
