YARN Forum calculations

  • #54688

    I ran the with the following output:

    [scripts]# python -c 12 -m 96 -d 6 -k True
    Using cores=12 memory=96GB disks=6 hbase=True
    Profile: cores=12 memory=69632MB reserved=28GB usableMem=68GB disks=6
    Num Container=11
    Container Ram=6144MB
    Used Ram=66GB
    Unused Ram=28GB

    When I compare that to the following page:

    Shouldn’t these values be equal per the calculation table?

    Configuration File Configuration Setting Value Calculation
    yarn-site.xml yarn.nodemanager.resource.memory-mb = Containers * RAM-per-Container
    yarn-site.xml yarn.scheduler.minimum-allocation-mb = RAM-per-Container
    yarn-site.xml yarn.scheduler.maximum-allocation-mb = containers * RAM-per-Container
    mapred-site.xml = RAM-per-Container
    mapred-site.xml mapreduce.reduce.memory.mb = 2 * RAM-per-Container
    mapred-site.xml = 0.8 * RAM-per-Container
    mapred-site.xml = 0.8 * 2 * RAM-per-Container
    yarn-site.xml (check) = 2 * RAM-per-Container
    yarn-site.xml (check) = 0.8 * 2 * RAM-per-Container

    The values in the table calculated as “2 * RAM-per-Container” don’t appear to be that way in the python script. What values should I use for my cluster, those I calculate from the web page or take the ones from the script?

The forum ‘YARN’ is closed to new topics and replies.
