Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-5685) Non-embedded HA failover is broken
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2016 21:38:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-5685?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15530951#comment-15530951

Daniel Templeton commented on YARN-5685:

I think I finally get it.  The net is that HA now requires either Curator or embedded to be
enabled.  Letting the {{ZKRMStateStore}} handle the RM state transitions is no longer an option
and hasn't been for a while.  There are only three ways {{transitionToActive()}} gets called:

# {{EmbeddedElectorService.becomeActive()}} -- embedded failover
# {{LeaderElectorService.isLeader()}} -- curator failover
# {{AdminService.transitionToActive()}} -- CLI

The question is what to do about non-embedded failover.  I don't think it's worth making non-embedded
failover work again.  I think we're better off declaring non-embedded failover to be dead
and removing the option altogether.

Given that this has been broken for a while and no one has noticed, I'm going to bump the
priority down a bit.

> YARN-4559 broke RM HA when embedded automatic failover is disabled.  The {{ZKRMStateStore}}
will now only start its monitoring thread when automatic failover not enabled (which is patently
useless).  I presume the intended change was to have the monitoring thread started when automatic
failover is not *embedded*.
> If HA is enabled with automatic failover enabled and embedded failover disabled, all
RMs all come up in standby state.  To make one of them active, the {{--forcemanual}} flag
must be used when manually triggering the state change.  Should the active go down, the standby
will not become active and must be manually transitioned with the {{--forcemanual}} flag.
