Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-4398) Yarn recover with FileSystemRMStateStore cause the cluster running slowly and usage percentage is much below 100
Date Sun, 29 Nov 2015 18:19:10 GMT
NING DING created YARN-4398:

             Summary: Yarn recover with FileSystemRMStateStore cause the cluster running slowly
and usage percentage is much below 100
                 Key: YARN-4398
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-4398
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: resourcemanager
    Affects Versions: 2.7.1
            Reporter: NING DING

Yarn recover with FileSystemRMStateStore cause the cluster running slowly and usage percentage
is much below 100.

In my hadoop cluster, the resourceManager recover functionality is enabled with FileSystemRMStateStore.
I found this cause the yarn cluster running slowly and cluster usage percentage is just 50
even there are many pending Apps. 

The scenario is below.
In thread A, the RMAppImpl$RMAppNewlySavingTransition is calling storeNewApplication method
defined in RMStateStore. This storeNewApplication method is synchronized.
  private static final class RMAppNewlySavingTransition extends RMAppTransition {
    public void transition(RMAppImpl app, RMAppEvent event) {

      // If recovery is enabled then store the application information in a
      // non-blocking call so make sure that RM has stored the information
      // needed to restart the AM after RM restart without further client
      // communication
      LOG.info("Storing application with id " + app.applicationId);
public synchronized void storeNewApplication(RMApp app) {
    ApplicationSubmissionContext context = app
    assert context instanceof ApplicationSubmissionContextPBImpl;
    ApplicationStateData appState =
            app.getSubmitTime(), app.getStartTime(), context, app.getUser());
    dispatcher.getEventHandler().handle(new RMStateStoreAppEvent(appState));
In thread B, the FileSystemRMStateStore is calling storeApplicationStateInternal method. It's
also synchronized.
This storeApplicationStateInternal method saves an ApplicationStateData into HDFS and it normally
costs 90~300 milliseconds in my hadoop cluster.
public synchronized void storeApplicationStateInternal(ApplicationId appId,
      ApplicationStateData appStateDataPB) throws Exception {
    Path appDirPath = getAppDir(rmAppRoot, appId);
    Path nodeCreatePath = getNodePath(appDirPath, appId.toString());

    LOG.info("Storing info for app: " + appId + " at: " + nodeCreatePath);
    byte[] appStateData = appStateDataPB.getProto().toByteArray();
    try {
      // currently throw all exceptions. May need to respond differently for HA
      // based on whether we have lost the right to write to FS
      writeFileWithRetries(nodeCreatePath, appStateData, true);
    } catch (Exception e) {
      LOG.info("Error storing info for app: " + appId, e);
      throw e;
Think thread B firstly come into FileSystemRMStateStore.storeApplicationStateInternal mehtod,
then thread A must be blocked for a while because of synchronization.

In ResourceManager there is only one RMStateStore instance. In my cluster it's FileSystemRMStateStore
Debug the RMAppNewlySavingTransition.transition method, the thread stack shows it called form
AsyncDispatcher.dispatch method. This method code is as below. 
  protected void dispatch(Event event) {
    //all events go thru this loop
    if (LOG.isDebugEnabled()) {
      LOG.debug("Dispatching the event " + event.getClass().getName() + "."
          + event.toString());

    Class<? extends Enum> type = event.getType().getDeclaringClass();

      EventHandler handler = eventDispatchers.get(type);
      if(handler != null) {
      } else {
        throw new Exception("No handler for registered for " + type);
    } catch (Throwable t) {
      //TODO Maybe log the state of the queue
      LOG.fatal("Error in dispatcher thread", t);
      // If serviceStop is called, we should exit this thread gracefully.
      if (exitOnDispatchException
          && (ShutdownHookManager.get().isShutdownInProgress()) == false
          && stopped == false) {
        Thread shutDownThread = new Thread(createShutDownThread());
        shutDownThread.setName("AsyncDispatcher ShutDown handler");
Above code shows AsyncDispatcher.dispatch method can process different type events.
In fact this AsyncDispatcher instance is just ResourceManager.rmDispatcher created in ResourceManager.serviceInit
You can find many eventTypes and handlers are registered in ResourceManager.rmDispatcher.
In above scenario thread B blocks thread A, then many following events processing are blocked.

In my testing cluster, there is only one queue and the client submits 1000 applications concurrently,
the yarn cluster usage only can reach 50. Many apps are pending. 
If I disable resourceManager recover functionality, the cluster usage can be 100.

To solve this issue, I remove synchronized modifier on some methods in FileSystemRMStateStore.
In this way, the yarn cluster usage can be 100% and the whole cluster is good running.
Please see my attached patch.
