Weiting, Andrew,

Agreed, great ideas!  As Andrew noted, we have discussed some of these
things before and it would be great to discuss them in Vancouver.

I think that a Sahara-side workflow manager is the right approach. Oozie
has a lot of capability for job coordination, but it won't work for all
of our cluster and job types.

Notes on Spark in particular -- when we implemented Spark EDP, we looked
at various implementations for a Spark job server.  One was to extend
Oozie, one was to use the Ooyala Spark job server, and one was to use
ssh around spark-submit.  We chose the last, notes are here:

https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/sahara_spark_edp

We could potentially revisit the Ooyala job server.  My impression at
the time was that for the functions we wanted, it was pretty heavy. But
if we are going to add job coordination as a general feature, it may be
appropriate. I believe in the Spark community it is the dominant
solution for job management, open source is here:

https://github.com/spark-jobserver/spark-jobserver

As part of the Spark investigation, I posted on this JIRA, too. This is
a JIRA for developing a REST api to the spark job server, which may be
enough for us to build our own coordination system:

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-3644

Best,

Trevor
