Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-15016) Cost-Based RPC FairCallQueue with Reservation support
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2018 00:07:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-15016?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16310503#comment-16310503

Xiaoyu Yao commented on HADOOP-15016:

[~ywskycn], thanks for the updated design doc. Some initial feedback:

1. This can be a useful feature for multi-tenancy Hadoop cluster. The cost estimates for different
RPC calls can be difficult. Instead of hardcode fixed value per RPC, I would suggest making
it a pluggable interface so that we can customize it for different deployments. 

2. The reserved share of call queue looks good. It is similar what we proposed in HADOOP-13128.
What do we plan to handle the case when the reserved queue is full? blocking or backoff?

3. The feature might need many manual configurations and tune to work for specific deployment
and workloads. Do you want to add a section to discuss configurations, CLI tools, etc. to
make this easier to use? 

4. It would be great if you could share some of the results achieved with the POC patch (e.g.,
RPC/second, average locking, process and queue time with/wo the patch).

> FairCallQueue is introduced to provide RPC resource fairness among different users. In
current implementation, each user is weighted equally, and the processing priority for different
RPC calls are based on how many requests that user sent before. This works well when the cluster
is shared among several end-users.
> However, this has some limitations when a cluster is shared among both end-users and
some service jobs, like some ETL jobs which run under a service account and need to issue
lots of RPC calls. When NameNode becomes quite busy, this set of jobs can be easily backoffed
and low-prioritied. We cannot simply treat this type jobs as "bad" user who randomly issues
too many calls, as their calls are normal calls. Also, it is unfair to weight a end-user and
a heavy service user equally when allocating RPC resources.
> One idea here is to introduce reservation support to RPC resources. That is, for some
services, we reserve some RPC resources for their calls. This idea is very similar to how
YARN manages CPU/memory resources among different resource queues. A little more details here:
Along with existing FairCallQueue setup (like using 4 queues with different priorities), we
would add some additional special queues, one for each special service user. For each special
service user, we provide a guarantee RPC share (like 10% which can be aligned with its YARN
resource share), and this percentage can be converted to a weight used in WeightedRoundRobinMultiplexer.
A quick example, we have 4 default queues with default weights (8, 4, 2, 1), and two special
service users (user1 with 10% share, and user2 with 15% share). So finally we'll have 6 queues,
4 default queues (with weights 8, 4, 2, 1) and 2 special queues (user1Queue weighted 15*10%/75%=2,
and user2Queue weighted 15*15%/75%=3).
> For new coming RPC calls from special service users, they will be put directly to the
corresponding reserved queue; for other calls, just follow current implementation.
> By default, there is no special user and all RPC requests follow existing FairCallQueue
> Would like to hear more comments on this approach; also want to know any other better
solutions? Will put a detailed design once get some early comments.
