Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-4758) Enable discovery of AMs by containers
Date Thu, 03 Mar 2016 21:24:18 GMT
Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli created YARN-4758:

             Summary: Enable discovery of AMs by containers
                 Key: YARN-4758
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-4758
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli

This is already discussed on the umbrella JIRA YARN-1489.

Copying some of my condensed summary from the design doc (section of YARN-4692.

Even after the existing work in Work­preserving AM restart (Section 3.1.2 / YARN-1489), we
still haven’t solved the problem of old running containers not knowing where the new AM
starts running after the previous AM crashes. This is a specifically important problem to
be solved for long running services where we’d like to avoid killing service containers
when AMs fail­over. So far, we left this as a task for the apps, but solving it in YARN is
much desirable. [(Task) This looks very much like service­-registry (YARN-913), but for app­containers
to discover their own AMs.

Combining this requirement (of any container being able to find their AM across fail­overs)
with those of services (to be able to find through DNS where a service container is running
- YARN-4757) will put our registry scalability needs to be much higher than that of just service
end­points. This calls for a more distributed solution for registry readers  something that
is discussed in the comments section of YARN-1489 and MAPREDUCE-6608.
