Subject [jira] [Commented] (OOZIE-588) Oozie to allow drill down to hadoop job's details
Date Tue, 08 Nov 2011 03:16:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OOZIE-588?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13146058#comment-13146058

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on OOZIE-588:

Santosh, it seems an unnecessary complexity to give the user the option to fail/continue.
They'll put continue and things will break.

If we do this we should ALWAYS store everything.

>                 Key: OOZIE-588
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OOZIE-588
>             Project: Oozie
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Mohammad Kamrul Islam
> High-level Requirements:
> -----------------------------------
> Since Oozie is designed as the gateway to grid, we need to support WS API for most common
hadoop commands through Oozie.  User doesn't want to go to multiple system to get the required
data. Based on these, we propose to implement the following requirements into Oozie.
> R1: Oozie will provide WS endpoints to get hadoop job details (including job counters).
> R2: It will support both types of hadoop jobs : MR job created for MR action,  MR jobs
created as part of pig script.
> R3:  In addition, for pig action, oozie will provide a way to query the pig stats.
> Proposed design:
> ----------------------
>      D1: Oozie will store the *summary* jobcounter /pigstats into oozie DB. The items
in the summary stats will be determined by oozie to limit the size. However,the commonly used
stats will be include into the summary. It is important to note that summary information will
be collected *after* the job finished.
>     D2: If the user asks for *details* hadoop job stats ,  the user needs to query using
different WS API. In this query, a user will specify *a* hadoop job id.  Oozie will directly
query the hadoop JT/RM/HS. Since it is an external call with undetermined response time, Oozie
will provide only one hadoop job id per-request to avoid the timeout in WS call. Caveats:
If hadoop is down or the job is not in JT/RM/History Server, Oozie will fail to collect the
>      D3: For pig, Oozie will store the pig-generated hadoop ids in it DB and will expose
that to user throw the "verbose" query.
>      D4: Oozie will need to collect those summary pig stats and corresponding job counters
and store it in Oozie DB. PigStats has a way of getting job counter for each hadoop job that
it submits. We could use that API to collect summary counters for pig-created jobs.
>      D5: The complete/detail pigstats will be stored into Pig Launcher Mapper as job
counter. So that if a user wants to get the detail pig stats, we could get it from the LM
> Open questions:
> ----------------------
> * What should be in the summary counters/stats? 
> * What is the max size of stats?
> Advanced planning: <Not in the scope of this task, but might required for design to
support later>
> --------------------------
> * Some users are asking to query the job stats when the job is RUNNING. They need it
to decide for subsequent job submissions.
> * By the above design , user could use D2, to get the counter when MR action is running.
> * However, for pig, it is not that straight forward. Because Pig submits the jobs during
execution. But the new PigRunner provide a listener concept where user can get the notifications
such as when a new MR job submitted and its ID.
> * By using this, Oozie could get the running hadoop job id instantly. In future, user
might want this to query using D2.
