The YARN Timeline Server

Overview

Introduction

The Storage and retrieval of application’s current and historic information in a generic fashion is addressed in YARN through the Timeline Server. It has two responsibilities:

Persisting Application Specific Information

The collection and retrieval of information completely specific to an application or framework. For example, the Hadoop MapReduce framework can include pieces of information like number of map tasks, reduce tasks, counters…etc. Application developers can publish the specific information to the Timeline server via TimelineClient in the Application Master and/or the application’s containers.

This information is then queryable via REST APIs for rendering by application/framework specific UIs.

Persisting Generic Information about Completed Applications

Previously this was supported purely for MapReduce jobs by the Application History Server. With the introduction of the timeline server, the Application History Server becomes just one use of the Timeline Server.

Generic information includes application level data such as

  • queue-name,
  • user information and the like set in the ApplicationSubmissionContext,
  • a list of application-attempts that ran for an application
  • information about each application-attempt
  • the list of containers run under each application-attempt
  • information about each container.

Generic data is published by the YARN Resource Manager to the timeline store and used by its web-UI to display information about completed applications.

Current Status and Future Plans

Current status

  1. The core functionality of the timeline server has been completed.
  2. It works in both secure and non secure clusters.
  3. The generic history service is built on the timeline store.
  4. The history can be stored in memory or in a leveldb database store; the latter ensures the history is preserved over Timeline Server restarts.
  5. The ability to install framework specific UIs in YARN is not supported.
  6. Application specific information is only available via RESTful APIs using JSON type content.
  7. The “Timeline Server v1” REST API has been declared one of the REST APIs whose compatibility will be maintained in future releases.
  8. The single-server implementation of the Timeline Server places a limit on the scalability of the service; it also prevents the service being High-Availability component of the YARN infrastructure.

Future Plans

  1. Future releases will introduce a next generation timeline service which is scalable and reliable, “Timeline Service v2”.
  2. The expanded features of this service may not be available to applications using the Timeline Server v1 REST API. That includes extended data structures as well as the ability of the client to failover between Timeline Server instances.

Timeline Structure

Timeline Structure

Timeline Domain

The Timeline Domain offers a namespace for Timeline server allowing users to host multiple entities, isolating them from other users and applications. Timeline server Security is defined at this level.

A “Domain” primarily stores owner info, read and& write ACL information, created and modified time stamp information. Each Domain is identified by an ID which must be unique across all users in the YARN cluster.

Timeline Entity

A Timeline Entity contains the the meta information of a conceptual entity and its related events.

The entity can be an application, an application attempt, a container or any user-defined object.

It contains Primary filters which will be used to index the entities in the Timeline Store. Accordingly, users/applications should carefully choose the information they want to store as the primary filters.

The remaining data can be stored as unindexed information. Each Entity is uniquely identified by an EntityId and EntityType.

Timeline Events

A Timeline Event describes an event that is related to a specific Timeline Entity of an application.

Users are free to define what an event means —such as starting an application, getting allocated a container, an operation failures or other information considered relevant to users and cluster operators.

Deployment

Configurations

Basic Configuration

Configuration Property Description
yarn.timeline-service.enabled In the server side it indicates whether timeline service is enabled or not. And in the client side, users can enable it to indicate whether client wants to use timeline service. If it’s enabled in the client side along with security, then yarn client tries to fetch the delegation tokens for the timeline server. Defaults to false.
yarn.resourcemanager.system-metrics-publisher.enabled The setting that controls whether or not YARN system metrics are published on the timeline server by RM. Defaults to false.
yarn.timeline-service.generic-application-history.enabled Indicate to clients whether to query generic application data from timeline history-service or not. If not enabled then application data is queried only from Resource Manager. Defaults to false.

Timeline store and state store configuration

Configuration Property Description
yarn.timeline-service.store-class Store class name for timeline store. Defaults to org.apache.hadoop.yarn.server.timeline.LeveldbTimelineStore.
yarn.timeline-service.leveldb-timeline-store.path Store file name for leveldb timeline store. Defaults to ${hadoop.tmp.dir}/yarn/timeline.
yarn.timeline-service.leveldb-timeline-store.ttl-interval-ms Length of time to wait between deletion cycles of leveldb timeline store in milliseconds. Defaults to 300000.
yarn.timeline-service.leveldb-timeline-store.read-cache-size Size of read cache for uncompressed blocks for leveldb timeline store in bytes. Defaults to 104857600.
yarn.timeline-service.leveldb-timeline-store.start-time-read-cache-size Size of cache for recently read entity start times for leveldb timeline store in number of entities. Defaults to 10000.
yarn.timeline-service.leveldb-timeline-store.start-time-write-cache-size Size of cache for recently written entity start times for leveldb timeline store in number of entities. Defaults to 10000.
yarn.timeline-service.recovery.enabled Defaults to false.
yarn.timeline-service.state-store-class Store class name for timeline state store. Defaults to org.apache.hadoop.yarn.server.timeline.recovery.LeveldbTimelineStateStore.
yarn.timeline-service.leveldb-state-store.path Store file name for leveldb timeline state store.

Web and RPC Configuration

Configuration Property Description
yarn.timeline-service.hostname The hostname of the Timeline service web application. Defaults to 0.0.0.0
yarn.timeline-service.address Address for the Timeline server to start the RPC server. Defaults to ${yarn.timeline-service.hostname}:10200.
yarn.timeline-service.webapp.address The http address of the Timeline service web application. Defaults to ${yarn.timeline-service.hostname}:8188.
yarn.timeline-service.webapp.https.address The https address of the Timeline service web application. Defaults to ${yarn.timeline-service.hostname}:8190.
yarn.timeline-service.bind-host The actual address the server will bind to. If this optional address is set, the RPC and webapp servers will bind to this address and the port specified in yarn.timeline-service.address and yarn.timeline-service.webapp.address, respectively. This is most useful for making the service listen on all interfaces by setting to 0.0.0.0.
yarn.timeline-service.http-cross-origin.enabled Enables cross-origin support (CORS) for web services where cross-origin web response headers are needed. For example, javascript making a web services request to the timeline server. Defaults to false.
yarn.timeline-service.http-cross-origin.allowed-origins Comma separated list of origins that are allowed for web services needing cross-origin (CORS) support. Wildcards (*) and patterns allowed. Defaults to *.
yarn.timeline-service.http-cross-origin.allowed-methods Comma separated list of methods that are allowed for web services needing cross-origin (CORS) support. Defaults to GET,POST,HEAD.
yarn.timeline-service.http-cross-origin.allowed-headers Comma separated list of headers that are allowed for web services needing cross-origin (CORS) support. Defaults to X-Requested-With,Content-Type,Accept,Origin.
yarn.timeline-service.http-cross-origin.max-age The number of seconds a pre-flighted request can be cached for web services needing cross-origin (CORS) support. Defaults to 1800.

Note that the selection between the HTTP and HTTPS binding is made in the TimelineClient based upon the value of the YARN-wide configuration option yarn.http.policy; the HTTPS endpoint will be selected if this policy is HTTPS_ONLY.

yarn.timeline-service.generic-application-history.max-applications The max number of applications could be fetched by using REST API or application history protocol and shown in timeline server web ui. Defaults to 10000.

UI Hosting Configuration

The timeline service can host multiple UIs if enabled. The service can support both static web sites hosted in a directory or war files bundled. The web UI is then hosted on the timeline service HTTP port under the path configured.

Configuration Property Description
yarn.timeline-service.ui-names Comma separated list of UIs that will be hosted. Defaults to none.
yarn.timeline-service.ui-on-disk-path.$name For each of the ui-names, an on disk path should be specified to the directory service static content or the location of a web archive (war file).

Security can be enabled by setting yarn.timeline-service.http-authentication.type to kerberos, after which the following configuration options are available:

Configuration Property Description
yarn.timeline-service.http-authentication.type Defines authentication used for the timeline server HTTP endpoint. Supported values are: simple / kerberos / #AUTHENTICATION_HANDLER_CLASSNAME#. Defaults to simple.
yarn.timeline-service.http-authentication.simple.anonymous.allowed Indicates if anonymous requests are allowed by the timeline server when using ‘simple’ authentication. Defaults to true.
yarn.timeline-service.principal The Kerberos principal for the timeline server.
yarn.timeline-service.keytab The Kerberos keytab for the timeline server. Defaults on Unix to to /etc/krb5.keytab.
yarn.timeline-service.delegation.key.update-interval Defaults to 86400000 (1 day).
yarn.timeline-service.delegation.token.renew-interval Defaults to 86400000 (1 day).
yarn.timeline-service.delegation.token.max-lifetime Defaults to 604800000 (7 days).
yarn.timeline-service.client.best-effort Should the failure to obtain a delegation token be considered an application failure (option = false), or should the client attempt to continue to publish information without it (option=true). Default: false

Enabling the timeline service and the generic history service

Following are the basic configuration to start Timeline server.

<property>
  <description>Indicate to clients whether Timeline service is enabled or not.
  If enabled, the TimelineClient library used by end-users will post entities
  and events to the Timeline server.</description>
  <name>yarn.timeline-service.enabled</name>
  <value>true</value>
</property>

<property>
  <description>The setting that controls whether yarn system metrics is
  published on the timeline server or not by RM.</description>
  <name>yarn.resourcemanager.system-metrics-publisher.enabled</name>
  <value>true</value>
</property>

<property>
  <description>Indicate to clients whether to query generic application
  data from timeline history-service or not. If not enabled then application
  data is queried only from Resource Manager.</description>
  <name>yarn.timeline-service.generic-application-history.enabled</name>
  <value>true</value>
</property>

Running the Timeline Server

Assuming all the aforementioned configurations are set properly admins can start the Timeline server/history service with the following command:

yarn timelineserver

To start the Timeline server / history service as a daemon, the command is

$HADOOP_YARN_HOME/sbin/yarn-daemon.sh start timelineserver

Accessing generic-data via command-line

Users can access applications’ generic historic data via the command line below

$ yarn application -status <Application ID>
$ yarn applicationattempt -list <Application ID>
$ yarn applicationattempt -status <Application Attempt ID>
$ yarn container -list <Application Attempt ID>
$ yarn container -status <Container ID>

Note that the same commands are usable to obtain the corresponding information about running applications.

Publishing application specific data

Developers can define what information they want to record for their applications by constructing TimelineEntity and TimelineEvent objects then publishing the entities and events to the Timeline Server via the TimelineClient API.

Here is an example:

// Create and start the Timeline client
TimelineClient client = TimelineClient.createTimelineClient();
client.init(conf);
client.start();

try {
  TimelineDomain myDomain = new TimelineDomain();
  myDomain.setID("MyDomain");
  // Compose other Domain info ....

  client.putDomain(myDomain);

  TimelineEntity myEntity = new TimelineEntity();
  myEntity.setDomainId(myDomain.getId());
  myEntity.setEntityType("APPLICATION");
  myEntity.setEntityID("MyApp1")
  // Compose other entity info

  TimelinePutResponse response = client.putEntities(entity);

  TimelineEvent event = new TimelineEvent();
  event.setEventType("APP_FINISHED");
  event.setTimestamp(System.currentTimeMillis());
  event.addEventInfo("Exit Status", "SUCCESS");
  // Compose other Event info ....

  myEntity.addEvent(event);
  TimelinePutResponse response = timelineClient.putEntities(entity);

} catch (IOException e) {
  // Handle the exception
} catch (RuntimeException e) {
  // In Hadoop 2.6, if attempts submit information to the Timeline Server fail more than the retry limit,
  // a RuntimeException will be raised. This may change in future releases, being
  // replaced with a IOException that is (or wraps) that which triggered retry failures.
} catch (YarnException e) {
  // Handle the exception
} finally {
  // Stop the Timeline client
  client.stop();
}
  1. Publishing of data to Timeline Server is a synchronous operation; the call will not return until successful.
  2. The TimelineClient implementation class is a subclass of the YARN Service API; it can be placed under a CompositeService to ease its lifecycle management.
  3. The result of a putEntities() call is a TimelinePutResponse object. This contains a (hopefully empty) list of those timeline entities reject by the timeline server, along with an error code indicating the cause of each failure.

In Hadoop 2.6 and 2.7, the error codes are:

Error Code Description
1 No start time
2 IOException
3 System Filter conflict (reserved filter key used)
4 Access Denied
5 No domain
6 Forbidden relation

Further error codes may be defined in future.

Note : Following are the points which need to be observed when updating a entity.

  • Domain ID should not be modified for already existing entity.
  • After a modification of a Primary filter value, the new value will be appended to the old value; the original value will not be replaced.
  • It’s advisable to have same primary filters for all updates on entity. Any on modification of a primary filter by in an update will result in queries with updated primary filter to not fetching the information before the update

Generic Data Web UI

Users can access the generic historic information of applications via web UI:

http(s)://<timeline server http(s) address:port>/applicationhistory

Timeline Server REST API V1

Querying the timeline server is currently only supported via REST API calls; there is no API client implemented in the YARN libraries. In Java, the Jersey client is effective at querying the server, even in secure mode (provided the caller has the appropriate Kerberos tokens or keytab).

The v1 REST API is implemented at under the path, /ws/v1/timeline/ on the Timeline Server web service.

Here is a non-normative description of the API.

Root path

GET /ws/v1/timeline/

Returns a JSON object describing the server instance and version information.

 {
   About: "Timeline API",
   timeline-service-version: "3.0.0-SNAPSHOT",
   timeline-service-build-version: "3.0.0-SNAPSHOT from fcd0702c10ce574b887280476aba63d6682d5271 by zshen source checksum e9ec74ea3ff7bc9f3d35e9cac694fb",

   hadoop-version-built-on: "2015-05-13T19:44Z"
 }

Domains /ws/v1/timeline/domain

Domain summary information /ws/v1/timeline/domain

GET /ws/v1/timeline/domain?owner=$OWNER

Returns a list of domains belonging to a specific user, in the JSON-marshalled TimelineDomains data structure.

The owner MUST be set on a GET which is not authenticated.

On an authenticated request, the owner defaults to the caller.

PUT /ws/v1/timeline/domain

A PUT of a serialized TimelineDomain structure to this path will add the domain to the list of domains owned by the specified/current user. A successful operation returns status code of 200 and a TimelinePutResponse containing no errors.

Specific information about a Domain /ws/v1/timeline/domain/{domainId}

Returns a JSON-marshalled TimelineDomain structure describing a domain.

If the domain is not found, then an HTTP 404 response is returned.

POST new domain /ws/v1/timeline/domain

Creates a new timeline domain, or overrides an existing one.

When attempting to create a new domain, the ID in the submission MUST be unique across all domains in the cluster.

When attempting to update an existing domain, the ID of that domain must be set. The submitter must have the appropriate permissions to update the domain.

submission: TimelineDomain

response: TimelinePutResponse

List domains of a user: GET /ws/v1/timeline/domain

Retrieves a list of all domains of a user.

If an owner is specified, that owner name overrides that of the caller.

Query Parameter Description
owner owner of the domains to list
GET http://localhost:8188/ws/v1/timeline/domain?owner=alice

{
"domains":
  [
    {
    "id":"DS_DOMAIN_2",
    "owner":"alice",
    "readers":"peter",
    "writers":"john",
    "createdtime":1430425000337,
    "modifiedtime":1430425000337
    },
    {
    "id":"DS_DOMAIN_1",
    "owner":"alice",
    "readers":"bar",
    "writers":"foo",
    "createdtime":1430424955963,
    "modifiedtime":1430424955963
    }
    ,
    {"id":"DEFAULT",
    "description":"System Default Domain",
    "owner":"alice",
    "readers":"*",
    "writers":"*",
    "createdtime":1430424022699,
    "modifiedtime":1430424022699
    }
  ]
}

response: TimelineDomains

If the user lacks the permission to list the domains of the specified owner, an TimelineDomains response with no domain listings is returned.

Retrieve details of a specific domain: GET /ws/v1/timeline/domain/{domainId}

Retrieves the details of a single domain

GET http://localhost:8188/ws/v1/timeline/domain/DS_DOMAIN_1

Response: TimelineDomain

{
  "id":"DS_DOMAIN_1",
  "owner":"zshen",
  "readers":"bar",
  "writers":"foo",
  "createdtime":1430424955963,
  "modifiedtime":1430424955963
}

If the user lacks the permission to query the details of that domain, a 404, not found exception is returned —the same response which is returned if there is no entry with that ID.

}

Required fields

Entity: type and id. starttime is required unless the entity contains one or more event). Event: type and timestamp.

Timeline Entity List

With the Timeline Entity List API, you can retrieve a list of entity object, sorted by the starting timestamp for the entity, descending. The starting timestamp of an entity can be a timestamp specified by the your application. If it is not explicitly specified, it will be chosen by the store to be the earliest timestamp of the events received in the first post for the entity.

URI:

Use the following URI to obtain all the entity objects of a given entityType.

http(s)://<timeline server http(s) address:port>/ws/v1/timeline/{entityType}

HTTP Operations Supported:

GET

Query Parameters Supported:

  1. limit - A limit on the number of entities to return. If null, defaults to 100.
  2. windowStart - The earliest start timestamp to retrieve (exclusive). If null, defaults to retrieving all entities until the limit is reached.
  3. windowEnd - The latest start timestamp to retrieve (inclusive). If null, defaults to the max value of Long.
  4. fromId - If fromId is not null, retrieve entities earlier than and including the specified ID. If no start time is found for the specified ID, an empty list of entities will be returned. The windowEnd parameter will take precedence if the start time of this entity falls later than windowEnd.
  5. fromTs - If fromTs is not null, ignore entities that were inserted into the store after the given timestamp. The entity’s insert timestamp used for this comparison is the store’s system time when the first put for the entity was received (not the entity’s start time).
  6. primaryFilter - Retrieves only entities that have the specified primary filter. If null, retrieves all entities. This is an indexed retrieval, and no entities that do not match the filter are scanned.
  7. secondaryFilters - Retrieves only entities that have exact matches for all the specified filters in their primary filters or other info. This is not an indexed retrieval, so all entities are scanned but only those matching the filters are returned.
  8. fields - Specifies which fields of the entity object to retrieve: EVENTS, RELATED_ENTITIES, PRIMARY_FILTERS, OTHER_INFO, LAST_EVENT_ONLY. If the set of fields contains LAST_EVENT_ONLY and not EVENTS, the most recent event for each entity is retrieved. If null, retrieves all fields.

Note that the value of the key/value pair for primaryFilter and secondaryFilters parameters can be of different data types, and matching is data type sensitive. Users need to format the value properly. For example, 123 and "123" means an integer and a string respectively. If the entity has a string "123" for primaryFilter, but the parameter is set to the integer 123, the entity will not be matched. Similarly, true means a boolean while "true" means a string. In general, the value will be casted as a certain Java type in consistent with jackson library parsing a JSON clip.

Elements of the entities (Timeline Entity List) Object

When you make a request for the list of timeline entities, the information will be returned as a collection of container objects. See also Timeline Entity for syntax of the timeline entity object.

Timeline Event List

With the Timeline Events API, you can retrieve the event objects for a list of entities all of the same entity type. The events for each entity are sorted in order of their timestamps, descending.

URI:

Use the following URI to obtain the event objects of the given entityType.

http(s)://<timeline server http(s) address:port>/ws/v1/timeline/{entityType}/events

HTTP Operations Supported:

GET

Query Parameters Supported:

  1. entityId - The entity IDs to retrieve events for. If null, no events will be returned. Multiple entityIds can be given as comma separated values.
  2. limit - A limit on the number of events to return for each entity. If null, defaults to 100 events per entity.
  3. windowStart - If not null, retrieves only events later than the given time (exclusive)
  4. windowEnd - If not null, retrieves only events earlier than the given time (inclusive)
  5. eventType - Restricts the events returned to the given types. If null, events of all types will be returned. Multiple eventTypes can be given as comma separated values.

Response Codes

  1. Queries where a domain, entity type, entity ID or similar cannot be resolved result in HTTP 404, “Not Found” responses.
  2. Requests in which the path, parameters or values are invalid result in Bad Request, 400, responses.
  3. In a secure cluster, a 401, “Forbidden”, response is generated when attempting to perform operations to which the caller does not have the sufficient rights. There is an exception to this when querying some entities, such as Domains; here the API deliberately downgrades permission-denied outcomes as empty and not-founds responses. This hides details of other domains from an unauthorized caller.
  4. If the content of timeline entity PUT operations is invalid, this failure will not result in an HTTP error code being retured. A status code of 200 will be returned —however, there will be an error code in the list of failed entities for each entity which could not be added.

Timeline Server Performance Test Tool

Highlights

The timeline server performance test tool helps measure timeline server’s write performance. The test launches SimpleEntityWriter mappers or JobHistoryFileReplay mappers to write timeline entities to the timeline server. At the end, the transaction rate(ops/s) per mapper and the total transaction rate will be measured and printed out. Running the test with SimpleEntityWriter mappers will also measure and show the IO rate(KB/s) per mapper and the total IO rate.

Usage

Mapper Types Description:

 1. SimpleEntityWriter mapper
    Each mapper writes a user-specified number of timeline entities
    with a user-specified size to the timeline server. SimpleEntityWrite
    is a default mapper of the performance test tool.

 2. JobHistoryFileReplay mapper
    Each mapper replays jobhistory files under a specified directory
    (both the jhist file and its corresponding conf.xml are required to
     be present in order to be replayed. The number of mappers should be no more
     than the number of jobhistory files).
    Each mapper will get assigned some jobhistory files to replay. For each
    job history file, a mapper will parse it to get jobinfo and then create
    timeline entities. Each mapper also has the choice to write all the
    timeline entities created at once or one at a time.

Options:

[-m <maps>] number of mappers (default: 1)
[-v] timeline service version
[-mtype <mapper type in integer>]
      1. simple entity write mapper (default)
      2. jobhistory files replay mapper
[-s <(KBs)test>] number of KB per put (mtype=1, default: 1 KB)
[-t] package sending iterations per mapper (mtype=1, default: 100)
[-d <path>] root path of job history files (mtype=2)
[-r <replay mode>] (mtype=2)
      1. write all entities for a job in one put (default)
      2. write one entity at a time

Sample Runs

Run SimpleEntityWriter test:

bin/hadoop jar performanceTest.jar timelineperformance -m 4 -mtype 1 -s 3 -t 200

Example output of SimpleEntityWriter test :

TRANSACTION RATE (per mapper): 20000.0 ops/s
IO RATE (per mapper): 60000.0 KB/s
TRANSACTION RATE (total): 80000.0 ops/s
IO RATE (total): 240000.0 KB/s

Run JobHistoryFileReplay mapper test

$ bin/hadoop jar performanceTest.jar timelineperformance -m 2 -mtype 2 -d /testInput -r 2

Example input of JobHistoryFileReplay mapper test:

$ bin/hadoop fs -ls /testInput
/testInput/job_1.jhist
/testInput/job_1_conf.xml
/testInput/job_2.jhist
/testInput/job_2_conf.xml

Example output of JobHistoryFileReplay test:

TRANSACTION RATE (per mapper): 4000.0 ops/s
IO RATE (per mapper): 0.0 KB/s
TRANSACTION RATE (total): 8000.0 ops/s
IO RATE (total): 0.0 KB/s
