YARN Forum

New configuration items

  • #42476
    Jim Falgout


    I’m developing a new application in YARN. The application has several application specific properties that are needed. Before integrating with YARN, we managed these with our own “resource manager”. Now that we’re integrating with YARN, what is the best route to go for these properties to be set and exposed within a HortonWorks Ambari instance? I’ve tried adding new properties to the YARN config section in Ambari. However, when using the YARNClient.getConfig() call from my client, the new properties are not present. I’d like a way to create/manage and query these properties using Ambari/YARN without having to build our own infrastructure just for setting/getting properties. What is the best way to do this?
