Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-3870) Providing raw container request information for fine scheduling
Date Sun, 03 Jan 2016 01:27:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-3870?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15076743#comment-15076743

Karthik Kambatla commented on YARN-3870:
----------------------------------------

Was fleshing this out further. The number of IDs and hence ResourceRequests could be O(num.
outstanding containers) which could pose problems as outlined in YARN-371. In fact, this JIRA
is a duplicate of YARN-371: may be, we should close this and continue the discussion there.

> Currently, when AM sends container requests to RM and scheduler, it expands individual
container requests into host/rack/any format. For instance, if I am asking for container request
with preference "host1, host2, host3", assuming all are in the same rack rack1, instead of
sending one raw container request to RM/Scheduler with raw preference list, it basically expand
it to become 5 different objects with host1, host2, host3, rack1 and any in there. When scheduler
receives information, it basically already lost the raw request. This is ok for single container
request, but it will cause trouble when dealing with multiple container requests from the
same application. Consider this case:
> 6 hosts, two racks:
> rack1 (host1, host2, host3) rack2 (host4, host5, host6)
> When application requests two containers with different data locality preference:
> c1: host1, host2, host4
> c2: host2, host3, host5
> This will end up with following container request list when client sending request to
RM/Scheduler:
> host1: 1 instance
> host2: 2 instances
> host3: 1 instance
> host4: 1 instance
> host5: 1 instance
> rack1: 2 instances
> rack2: 2 instances
> any: 2 instances
> Fundamentally, it is hard for scheduler to make a right judgement without knowing the
raw container request. The situation will get worse when dealing with affinity and anti-affinity
or even gang scheduling etc.
> We need some way to provide raw container request information for fine scheduling purpose.
