Subject [jira] [Created] (HAMA-639) Superstep Chaining API
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2012 15:21:07 GMT
Suraj Menon created HAMA-639:

             Summary: Superstep Chaining API
                 Key: HAMA-639
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HAMA-639
             Project: Hama
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: bsp core
            Reporter: Suraj Menon

API Requirements:
* From HAMA framework
** A provision to iterate over supersteps
** Provide condition state for continuing execution of supersteps
** For fault tolerance
*** The BSP Peer should be able to save complete state of the computation. *** The state saved
is enough to recover to start its execution from that point in superstep execution. The state
to be saved is as followed:
**** The next superstep instance to be executed.
**** In case of loops the condition state of the execution should be provided to indicate
the peer whether it should run the next superstep
** Ability to start from the beginning of the superstep
*** This would be a good point of notifying the peer if it should instantiate the required
message queue implementation used for that superstep.
*** This could also be a good point to indicate the synchronization barrier that the superstep
chain would be participating in.
* For BSP Job programmers. - (This is a tricky situation where the programmers are not as
restricted as in Map-Reduce model to express their jobs. However with this freedom comes the
responsibility to maintain the state of your program. )
** API should help programmers to express their jobs as a series of Supersteps
** API should let them chain their superstep implementation allowing them to share references
to data-structures among the supersteps.
** API should let programmer to define the message queue type for the superstep
** API should let programmer decide the synchronization barrier that the current superstep
is going to be part of.
** API should let programmer save the state of the superstep chain to persistent storage and
retrieve the same such that the program could execute from the beginning of any superstep
execution in the chain for fault tolerance.
