Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-6455) Enhance the timelinewriter.flush() race condition fix in YARN-6382

Haibo Chen created YARN-6455:

             Summary: Enhance the timelinewriter.flush() race condition fix in YARN-6382
                 Key: YARN-6455
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-6455
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: yarn
    Affects Versions: 3.0.0-alpha2
            Reporter: Haibo Chen
            Assignee: Haibo Chen

YARN-6376 fixes timelinewriter.flush() race condition among concurrent putEntities() calls
and periodical flush by TimelineCollectorManager by synchronizing on the writer object. 

Synchronizing on the writer is still a little brittle there, because there is a getWriter
method which lets callers access the writer without synchronizing on it. AppLevelTimelineCollector#AppLevelAggregator#agregate()
does this in line 152: getWriter().write(...)  In this case it doesn't flush, but if that
were to be added, that would re-introduce the race fixed in YARN-6376.

Instead of exposing the writer, perhaps it would be better to have the sub-classes call #putEntities
instead. It defers to the private writeTimelineEntities which does the same work to get the
TimelineCollectorContext context = getTimelineEntityContext();
