Subject [jira] [Created] (MESOS-156) Create framework that provides a high level resource request language
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2012 02:37:59 GMT
Create framework that provides a high level resource request language

                 Key: MESOS-156
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: framework
            Reporter: Andy Konwinski

One of the primary points of confusion about Mesos is the mechanism it provides frameworks
to acquire new resources (e.g. cpu, ram, etc.). Currently, frameworks receive callbacks with
resource offers which they can accept (entirely or only a portion) or reject. When they accept
them, they provide a task to be executed on those resources.

Many engineers we have spoken to have said that they would find it more intuitive to provide
their executable up front with a description of which and how many resources they want, and
then have mesos do the scheduling.

I propose that Mesos should ship with a framework that can very easily be installed and run
by new users, and this framework should accept "Launch Job Requests" expressed via some language
that describes the resource requirements and where to find the executable for the tasks in
the job.
