Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-3998) Add retry-times to let NM re-launch container when it fails to run
Date Thu, 24 Dec 2015 16:29:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-3998?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15071113#comment-15071113

Jun Gong commented on YARN-3998:

Sorry for late. I just attached a patch for review, will add test cases later.

In the patch, I add *ContainerRetry* to specify container’s retry strategy when container
fails to run, *ContainerRetry* includes 4 fields:
* *ContainerRetryPolicy*: it has three policies: *NEVER_RETRY*(no matter what error code is
when container fails to run, just do not retry), *ALWAYS_RETRY*(no matter what error code
is, when container fails to run, just retry), *RETRY_ON_SPECIFIC_ERROR_CODE*(when container
fails to run, do retry if the error code is one of errorCodes, otherwise do not retry).
* *errorCodes* is described as above.
* *retryTimes* specifies how many times to retry if need to retry, if the value is -1, it
means retrying forever.
* *retryInterval* specifies delaying some time before relaunch container, the unit is seconds.

I store container's remain retry times to NMStateStore to keep it across NM restart. And I
modified distributed shell to support container retry, it helps a lot for testing.

> I'd like to add a field(retry-times) in ContainerLaunchContext. When AM launches containers,
it could specify the value. Then NM will re-launch the container 'retry-times' times when
it fails to run(e.g.exit code is not 0). 
> It will save a lot of time. It avoids container localization. RM does not need to re-schedule
the container. And local files in container's working directory will be left for re-use.(If
container have downloaded some big files, it does not need to re-download them when running
> We find it is useful in systems like Storm.
