Will Rouesnel commented on MESOS-3401:
Another use case for this (which would need to be dynamic) is reporting
container layers to a scheduler.
i.e. a scheduler would like to start a docker container. When starting tasks,
it would like to minimize the amount of extra network traffic, so it
prioritizes starting tasks which require the fewest extra filesystem layers to
The actual implementation could be done a number of ways, but it would be nice
to express the metadata via a Mesos offer rather then going out of band.
> Add labels to Resources
> Key: MESOS-3401
> URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MESOS-3401
> Project: Mesos
> Issue Type: Improvement
> Components: slave
> Reporter: Adam B
> Labels: external-volumes, mesosphere, resources
> Similar to how we have added labels to tasks/executors (MESOS-2120), and even
> FrameworkInfo (MESOS-2841), we should extend Resource to allow arbitrary
> key/value pairs.
> This could be used to specify that a cpu resource has a certain speed, that a
> disk resource is SSD, or express any other metadata about a built-in or
> custom resource type. Only the scalar quantity will be used for determining
> fair share in the Mesos allocator. The rest will be passed onto frameworks as
> info they can use for scheduling decisions.
> This would require changes to how the slave specifies its `--resources`
> (probably as json), how the slave/master reports resources in its web/json
> API, and how resources are offered to frameworks.
