Subject Re: Framework change role
Date Wed, 05 Jul 2017 09:39:36 GMT
Ok, probably you are right but what you don’t understand is that i am a completely newbie
and i see such systems for the first time. It’s about a university project that i am working
on in order to get my bachelor degree. I don’t really know the proper way to express what
i want to like you do. I don’t know how to connect 2 frameworks or something, i don’t
even know how to make my own framework and compile it with the dependencies that Mesos needs.
I am just writting on and and that’s all. The reason
that i want to run everything from the same framework (instance) is because keep a TreeMap
with some info that i don’t want to lose if i terminate the Schedulers driver. So if i start
up a new framework, TreeMap is gone. Forget about the tasks, i can use the same
for every scheduler. 

What i want to achieve is to get offers from a specific agent with role “SB” and run 10
tasks (i give also to my Framework role “SB”), then i store those information (which are
actually TaskInfo in Schedulers TreeMap). After that i would like to change the role of my
Framework to “*(default)”. Then i will get offer from an agent that has the default role
and i will still have the info in my TreeMap because scheduler instance didn’t stop.

That’s all. My problem is that i don’t know how to change the role of the Framework without
losing that TreeMap, and also how to set it with version 1.3.0.  

Hope that everybody understands now….
Thank you, and i am really sorry for the spam

> As I suggested on Slack, I still think the most obvious way to implement this is to connect
2 frameworks, 1 for each role. Just co-ordinate internally to accept the offers you want in
the right sequence. From your description, there's no requirement for this to be done in 1

of the same task (from whatever framework you like); you can also send new tasks to an existing
executor (from the same framework).

both 'role' and '*', so resources reserved to 'role' on particular agent could be reliably
supplied to the framework? Isn't it sufficient to start your framework with multiple roles,
'role' & '*'? You need to enable the capability.

i am not terminating it. I would like to change its role to default (*) and get offered resources
from master that correspond to that role and it will run again the same amount of tasks (and
the same tasks) because i never terminated (and i don't want to terminate its instance because
i keep some mesos metrics to a static TreeMap). That's all.. I just wanted somebody to explain
me exactly how it works and what i have to do because everything i have tried today fails,
and seems i can't find useful info on the Internet about this.
