Subject [jira] [Created] (MESOS-7429) Allow isolators to inject task-specific environment variables.
Date Wed, 26 Apr 2017 18:49:04 GMT
Till Toenshoff created MESOS-7429:

             Summary: Allow isolators to inject task-specific environment variables.
                 Key: MESOS-7429
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.2.0
            Reporter: Till Toenshoff

For command tasks, we currently have no way for isolators to inject task specific environments
into data path.

Isolators in their {{prepare}} implementation can return a {{ContainerLaunchInfo}} which currently
supports setting the member {{environment}} - but that is effective for the executor already
and will get inherited by the task environment.

Given that the command-executor is active in the host-fs context but the task may be running
in a container-fs context ({{has_rootfs=true}}), using the above will possibly cause failures,
depending on the nature of the variables set -- consider e.g. {{LD_LIBRARY_PATH}} as a fatal

The command-executor does support the flag {{task_environment}} to receive environment variables
which are meant exclusively for the task itself but not the executor.

Runtime isolators (docker/runtime, appc/runtime) already make use of this flag. However, they
do it in a way that is a bit unfortunate as it does not allow for other isolators to make
use of it - there is no merging taking place in the containerizer.
