Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli commented on YARN-3443:
-----------------------------------------------

bq. I would prefer we separate interfaces with implementation.
I've tried to get this done this way offline, but we unfortunately came to the 
conclusion that this may not be straightforward given the tight coupling 
between LCE, CgroupsHandler, container-executor binary etc. I think this is a 
reasonable first cut at cleaning up things for Linux, with the goal of adding 
more resource types like disk to Linux less painful.

Existing resource-types added to Windows (YARN-2190) are already laid out in 
some fashion, I'd not do another refactor before carefully looking at how to 
structure them together. Let's keep the focus of this JIRA to extend resources 
for Linux and branch the cross-platform refactoring off to its own JIRA.

IAC, let's make sure that none of this internal packaging structure leaks 
through to the end-users via configuration property names or documentation.

> Today, support for CPU and memory as resources (on linux) are implemented in 
> a way that cannot be easily extended to other new resource types (e.g 
> network/disk). For example, some functionality cgroups functionality is 
> implemented in LCE (mountCgroups) and the rest in CgroupsLCEResourcesHandler. 
> CPU specific functionality is also implemented in CgroupsLCEResourcesHandler 
> - using this handler automatically enables CPU as a resource.  Some cgroups 
> functionality requires elevated/super-user privileges and needs to be 
> implemented via the container-executor binary. Implementing support for a new 
> resource type in linux using the existing classes/mechanisms would be messy 
> (for example, we might have to significantly modify/bloat 
> CgroupsLCEResourceHandler).  As an alternative, we have implemented a new 
> ‘ResourceHandler’ mechanism that makes things cleaner and enables easier 
> addition of new resource types.  When adding support for a new resource type 
> in the NM (from an isolation/enforcement perspective), there are three 
> different pieces required : 
> 1) generic cgroups utilities that can be re-used across multiple resource 
> handler ( e.g for CPU, Network, Disk). For example for net_cls we want to be 
> able to create new cgroups, update cgroup params, read cgroup params etc. 
> 2) A mechanism to execute ‘PrivilegedOperation’s whose functionality requires 
> super-user privileges and is implemented by container-executor binary
> 3) Implementation that is specific to a resource type ( i.e network, disk 
> would each have an implementation that provides isolation/enforcement for 
> that resource type)
> Corresponding to the three pieces listed above, the patch for YARN-3443 
> provides the following :
> 1) cgroups functionality that can be used across different resource types.  
> CGroupsHandler.java specifies the interface and implementation is in 
> CGroupsHandlerImpl.java . New cgroups controller types can be easily added to 
> CGroupsHandler.java as and when necessary
> 2) PrivilegedOperation.java and PrivilegedOperationExecutor.java wrap the 
> container-executor binary and provide a way of executing operations that 
> require elevated privileges. There are also utility functions that help 
> ‘batching’ of certain kinds of operations in order to avoid multiple 
> invocations of the container-executor binary
> 3) ResourceHandler.java specifies an interface that custom resource handlers 
> are expected to implement. This interface provides hooks for various 
> operations during a container lifecyle - bootstrap, preStart, postComplete, 
> reAcquire, teardown.  Each of these hooks return a list of privileged 
> operations - this is done so that the resulting set of privileged operations 
> can be batched for performance reasons, if necessary. 
> ResourceHandlerChain.java provides a simple chaining mechanism across 
> multiple resource handlers. This is useful when multiple resource handlers 
> are in place. They can be chained in sequence - e.g cpu, network, disk . A 
> resource handler chain would hook in directly into LCE at various points in 
> the container life cycle.
