Imran Rashid updated SPARK-13669:
    Component/s: Scheduler

> Job will always fail in the external shuffle service unavailable situation

>                 Key: SPARK-13669
>                 URL:
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Scheduler, Spark Core, YARN
>            Reporter: Saisai Shao
>            Assignee: Saisai Shao
>             Fix For: 2.3.0
> Currently we are running into an issue with Yarn work preserving enabled + external shuffle
> In the work preserving enabled scenario, the failure of NM will not lead to the exit
of executors, so executors can still accept and run the tasks. The problem here is when NM
is failed, external shuffle service is actually inaccessible, so reduce tasks will always
complain about the “Fetch failure”, and the failure of reduce stage will make the parent
stage (map stage) rerun. The tricky thing here is Spark scheduler is not aware of the unavailability
of external shuffle service, and will reschedule the map tasks on the executor where NM is
failed, and again reduce stage will be failed with “Fetch failure”, and after 4 retries,
the job is failed.
> So here the main problem is that we should avoid assigning tasks to those bad executors
(where shuffle service is unavailable). Current Spark's blacklist mechanism could blacklist
executors/nodes by failure tasks, but it doesn't handle this specific fetch failure scenario.
So here propose to improve the current application blacklist mechanism to handle fetch failure
issue (especially with external shuffle service unavailable issue), to blacklist the executors/nodes
where shuffle fetch is unavailable.
