Subject Re: How to avoid long-running jobs blocking short-running jobs
Date Sat, 03 Nov 2018 09:16:56 GMT

What does your Spark deployment architecture looks like? Standalone? Yarn? Mesos? Kubernetes?
Those have resource managers (not middlewares) that allow to implement scenarios as you want
to achieve.

 In any case you can try the FairScheduler of any of those solutions.

Best regards
