Kannan Rajah commented on YARN-547:
-----------------------------------

Why is it that we still have this state transition from DOWNLOADING to 
DOWNLOADING in LocalizedResource.java? It is marked with a TODO. Not sure what 
the intention is here.
This is causing the resource to be localized again. If I remove this line, that 
it works fine. But not sure if it will cause some other issue. Can someone 
please comment on it?

// From DOWNLOADING (ref > 0, may be localizing)
.addTransition(ResourceState.DOWNLOADING, ResourceState.DOWNLOADING,
    ResourceEventType.REQUEST, new FetchResourceTransition()) // TODO: 
Duplicate addition!!

> Race condition in Public / Private Localizer may result into resource getting 
> downloaded again

> Public Localizer :
> At present when multiple containers try to request a localized resource 
> * If the resource is not present then first it is created and Resource 
> Localization starts ( LocalizedResource is in DOWNLOADING state)
> * Now if in this state multiple ResourceRequestEvents arrive then 
> ResourceLocalizationEvents are sent for all of them.
> Most of the times it is not resulting into a duplicate resource download but 
> there is a race condition present there. Inside ResourceLocalization (for 
> public download) all the requests are added to local attempts map. If a new 
> request comes in then first it is checked in this map before a new download 
> starts for the same. For the current download the request will be there in 
> the map. Now if a same resource request comes in then it will rejected (i.e. 
> resource is getting downloaded already). However if the current download 
> completes then the request will be removed from this local map. Now after 
> this removal if the LocalizerRequestEvent comes in then as it is not present 
> in local map the resource will be downloaded again.
> PrivateLocalizer :
> Here a different but similar race condition is present.
> * Here inside findNextResource method call; each LocalizerRunner tries to 
> grab a lock on LocalizerResource. If the lock is not acquired then it will 
> keep trying until the resource state changes to LOCALIZED. This lock will be 
> released by the LocalizerRunner when download completes.
> * Now if another ContainerLocalizer tries to grab the lock on a resource 
> before LocalizedResource state changes to LOCALIZED then resource will be 
> downloaded again.
> At both the places the root cause of this is that all the threads try to 
> acquire the lock on resource however current state of the LocalizedResource 
> is not taken into consideration.
