public class ApplicationMaster
extends Object

An ApplicationMaster for executing shell commands on a set of launched containers using the YARN framework.

This class is meant to act as an example on how to write yarn-based application masters.

The ApplicationMaster is started on a container by the ResourceManager's launcher. The first thing that the ApplicationMaster needs to do is to connect and register itself with the ResourceManager. The registration sets up information within the ResourceManager regarding what host:port the ApplicationMaster is listening on to provide any form of functionality to a client as well as a tracking url that a client can use to keep track of status/job history if needed.

The ApplicationMaster needs to send a heartbeat to the ResourceManager at regular intervals to inform the ResourceManager that it is up and alive. The AMRMProtocol.allocate(org.apache.hadoop.yarn.api.protocolrecords.AllocateRequest) to the ResourceManager from the ApplicationMaster acts as a heartbeat.

For the actual handling of the job, the ApplicationMaster has to request the ResourceManager via AllocateRequest for the required no. of containers using ResourceRequest with the necessary resource specifications such as node location, computational (memory/disk/cpu) resource requirements. The ResourceManager responds with an AllocateResponse that informs the ApplicationMaster of the set of newly allocated containers, completed containers as well as current state of available resources.

For each allocated container, the ApplicationMaster can then set up the necessary launch context via ContainerLaunchContext to specify the allocated container id, local resources required by the executable, the environment to be setup for the executable, commands to execute, etc. and submit a StartContainerRequest to the ContainerManager to launch and execute the defined commands on the given allocated container.

The ApplicationMaster can monitor the launched container by either querying the ResourceManager using AMRMProtocol.allocate(org.apache.hadoop.yarn.api.protocolrecords.AllocateRequest) to get updates on completed containers or via the ContainerManager by querying for the status of the allocated container's ContainerId.

After the job has been completed, the ApplicationMaster has to send a FinishApplicationMasterRequest to the ResourceManager to inform it that the ApplicationMaster has been completed.
