Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-4757) [Umbrella] Simplified discovery of services via DNS mechanisms
Date Mon, 14 Mar 2016 17:01:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-4757?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15193627#comment-15193627
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on YARN-4757:
----------------------------------------

bq.  As far as I know there is no standard for including port(s) in a DNS entry. 

The proposed solution better use SRV records and not just some stupidly naive approach with
A/CNAME records.  SRV is built for long lived service discovery using DNS and covers such
things as port numbers, weighting, etc.

> In addition to completing the present story of service­-registry (YARN-913), we also
need to simplify the access to the registry entries. The existing read mechanisms of the YARN
Service Registry are currently limited to a registry specific (java) API and a REST interface.
In practice, this makes it very difficult for wiring up existing clients and services. For
e.g, dynamic configuration of dependent end­points of a service is not easy to implement
using the present registry­-read mechanisms, *without* code-changes to existing services.
> A good solution to this is to expose the registry information through a more generic
and widely used discovery mechanism: DNS. Service Discovery via DNS uses the well-­known
DNS interfaces to browse the network for services. YARN-913 in fact talked about such a DNS
based mechanism but left it as a future task. (Task) Having the registry information exposed
via DNS simplifies the life of services.
