Learning YARN

By: Akhil Arora, Shrey Mehrotra, Shreyank Gupta

Overview of this book

Today enterprises generate huge volumes of data. In order to provide effective services and to make smarter and more intelligent decisions from these huge volumes of data, enterprises use big-data analytics. In recent years, Hadoop has been used for massive data storage and efficient distributed processing of data. The Yet Another Resource Negotiator (YARN) framework solves the design problems related to resource management faced by the Hadoop 1.x framework by providing a more scalable, efficient, flexible, and highly available resource management framework for distributed data processing. This book starts with an overview of the YARN features and explains how YARN provides a business solution for growing big data needs. You will learn to provision and manage single, as well as multi-node, Hadoop-YARN clusters in the easiest way. You will walk through the YARN administration, life cycle management, application execution, REST APIs, schedulers, security framework and so on. You will gain insights about the YARN components and features such as ResourceManager, NodeManager, ApplicationMaster, Container, Timeline Server, High Availability, Resource Localisation and so on. The book explains Hadoop-YARN commands and the configurations of components and explores topics such as High Availability, Resource Localization and Log aggregation. You will then be ready to develop your own ApplicationMaster and execute it over a Hadoop-YARN cluster. Towards the end of the book, you will learn about the security architecture and integration of YARN with big data technologies like Spark and Storm. This book promises conceptual as well as practical knowledge of resource management using YARN.

The NodeManager's view

The NodeManager service in YARN updates its resource capabilities to the ResourceManager and tracks the execution of containers running on the node.

Other than the health of a node, the NodeManager service is responsible for the following:

  • Execution of an application and its associated containers

  • Provide localized resources for the execution of containers related to applications

  • Manage logs of different applications

The NodeManager service has its own view for the following:

  • Application: This manages the application's execution, logs, and resources

  • Container: This manages the execution of containers as a separate process

  • Localized resource: This involves the files required for the container's execution

View 1 – Application

NodeManager manages the life cycle of the application's containers and resources used during application execution. The NodeManager view of an application represents how NodeManager manages the container's execution, resources, and logs of the application...
