EDP (Elastic Data Processing) Components and workflow

Key Features

Starting the job:

Job execution modes:

  • Run job on one of the existing cluster
    • Expose information on cluster load
    • Provide hints for optimizing data locality TODO: more details
  • Create new transient cluster for the job

Job structure:

  • Individual job via jar file, Pig or Hive script
  • Oozie workflow
  • In future to support EMR job flows import

Job execution tracking and monitoring

  • Any existent components that can help to visualize? (Twitter Ambrose)
  • Terminate job
  • Auto-scaling functionality

Main EDP Components

Data discovery component

EDP can have several sources of data for processing. Data can be pulled from Swift, GlusterFS or NoSQL database like Cassandra or HBase. To provide an unified access to this data we’ll introduce a component responsible for discovering data location and providing right configuration for Hadoop cluster. It should have a pluggable system.

Job Source

Users would like to execute different types of jobs: jar file, Pig and Hive scripts, Oozie job flows, etc. Job description and source code can be supplied in a different way. Some users just want to insert hive script and run it. Other users want to save this script in Savanna internal database for later use. We also need to provide an ability to run a job from source code stored in vcs.

Savanna Dispatcher Component

This component is responsible for provisioning a new cluster, scheduling job on new or existing cluster, resizing cluster and gathering information from clusters about current jobs and utilization. Also, it should provide information to help to make a right decision where to schedule job, create a new cluster or use existing one. For example, current loads on clusters, their proximity to the data location etc.

UI Component

Integration into OpenStack Dashboard - Horizon. It should provide instruments for job creation, monitoring etc. Hue already provides part of this functionality: submit jobs (jar file, Hive, Pig, Impala), view job status and output.

Cluster Level Coordination Component

Expose information about jobs on a specific cluster. Possible this component should be represent by existing Hadoop projects Hue and Oozie.

User Workflow

- User selects or creates a job to run
- User chooses data source for appropriate type for this job
- Dispatcher provides hints to user about a better way to scheduler this job (on existing clusters or create a new one)
- User makes a decision based on the hint from dispatcher
- Dispatcher (if needed) creates or resizes existing cluster and schedules job to it
- Dispatcher periodically pull status of job and shows it on UI
