Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-2008) Enhance spark-ec2 to be able to add and remove slaves to an existing cluster
Date Tue, 27 Jan 2015 16:46:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-2008?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14293805#comment-14293805
] 

Nicholas Chammas commented on SPARK-2008:
-----------------------------------------

This isn't implemented. {{--use-existing-master}} is for adding slaves to a cluster with a
stopped master and no existing slaves.

>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: EC2
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.0
>            Reporter: Nicholas Chammas

> Per [the discussion here|http://apache-spark-user-list.1001560.n3.nabble.com/Having-spark-ec2-join-new-slaves-to-existing-cluster-td3783.html]:

> I would like to be able to use spark-ec2 to launch new slaves and add them to an existing,
running cluster. Similarly, I would also like to remove slaves from an existing cluster.
> Use cases include:
> * Oh snap, I sized my cluster incorrectly. Let me add/remove some slaves.
> * During scheduled batch processing, I want to add some new slaves, perhaps on spot instances.
When that processing is done, I want to kill them. (Cruel, I know.)
> I gather this is not possible at the moment. spark-ec2 appears to be able to launch new
slaves for an existing cluster only if the master is stopped. I also do not see any ability
to remove slaves from a cluster.
