Docker on YARN Incorrect Program Arguments

Cloudera Employee

When running a Dockerized YARN service, YARN is not providing the correct input arguments.

The service is defined as follows. The entry point in the docker file is ["java", "-jar", "myapp.jar"]. For debugging, it outputs the incoming arguments and exits.

{
  "name": "myapp",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "description": "myapp",
  "components" :
    [
      {
        "name": "myappcontainers",
        "number_of_containers": 1,
        "artifact": {
          "id": "myapp:1.0-SNAPSHOT",
          "type": "DOCKER"
        },
        "launch_command": "input1 input2",
        "resource": {
          "cpus": 1,
          "memory": "256"
        }
      }
    ]
}

Here is the output from YARN:

The program itself is given the redirection commands. Is there a way to disable this behavior?

The only two workarounds I have identified are:

  1. Change the ENTRYPOINT in the dockerfile to be ["sh", "-c"] and the launch_command to "java -jar myjar.jar"
  2. Change the program to use or ignore the "1>" and "2>" inputs

Both of these solutions require repackaging in a way that does not conform to Docker best practice.

@Sam Hjelmfelt Running Docker containers which have ENTRYPOINT in YARN Services requires additional configuration to be specified in the service spec. The env variable YARN_CONTAINER_RUNTIME_DOCKER_RUN_OVERRIDE_DISABLE needs to be set to true. Additionally the launch command parameters are separated with commas instead of space. Try running with the below spec.

{
  "name": "myapp",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "description": "myapp",
  "components": [
    {
      "name": "myappcontainers",
      "number_of_containers": 1,
      "artifact": {
        "id": "myapp:1.0-SNAPSHOT",
        "type": "DOCKER"
      },
      "launch_command": "input1,input2",
      "resource": {
        "cpus": 1,
        "memory": "256"
      },

          "YARN_CONTAINER_RUNTIME_DOCKER_RUN_OVERRIDE_DISABLE": "true"
        }

@Tarun Parimi Thanks for the tip. I set "YARN_CONTAINER_RUNTIME_DOCKER_RUN_OVERRIDE_DISABLE" in the yarn-env.sh, because I did not know I could set it on the service itself. This is a better solution, but does not address the main issue.

Unfortunately, comma separating the input parameters did not help either. Here is the output:

Docker run command: /usr/bin/docker run --name=container_e06_1541194419811_0015_01_000002 --user=1015:1015 --net=yarnnetwork -v /hadoop/yarn/local/filecache:/hadoop/yarn/local/filecache:ro -v /hadoop/yarn/local/usercache/shjelmfelt/filecache:/hadoop/yarn/local/usercache/admin/filecache:ro -v /hadoop/yarn/log/application_1541194419811_0015/container_e06_1541194419811_0015_01_000002:/hadoop/yarn/log/application_1541194419811_0015/container_e06_1541194419811_0015_01_000002 -v /hadoop/yarn/local/usercache/admin/appcache/application_1541194419811_0015:/hadoop/yarn/local/usercache/admin/appcache/application_1541194419811_0015 --cgroup-parent=/hadoop-yarn/container_e06_1541194419811_0015_01_000002 --cap-drop=ALL --cap-add=SYS_CHROOT --cap-add=MKNOD --cap-add=SETFCAP --cap-add=SETPCAP --cap-add=DAC_READ_SEARCH --cap-add=FSETID --cap-add=SYS_PTRACE --cap-add=CHOWN --cap-add=SYS_ADMIN --cap-add=AUDIT_WRITE --cap-add=SETGID --cap-add=NET_RAW --cap-add=FOWNER --cap-add=SETUID --cap-add=DAC_OVERRIDE --cap-add=KILL --cap-add=NET_BIND_SERVICE --hostname=myappcontainers-0.myapp.admin.EXAMPLE.COM --group-add 1015 --env-file /hadoop/yarn/local/nmPrivate/application_1541194419811_0015/container_e06_1541194419811_0015_01_000002/docker.container_e06_1541194419811_0015_01_0000022942289027318724111.env 172.26.224.119:5000/myapp:1.0-SNAPSHOT input1 input2 1>/hadoop/yarn/log/application_1541194419811_0015/container_e06_1541194419811_0015_01_000002/stdout.txt 2>/hadoop/yarn/log/application_1541194419811_0015/container_e06_1541194419811_0015_01_000002/stderr.txt

@Sam Hjelmfelt I don't think setting YARN_CONTAINER_RUNTIME_DOCKER_RUN_OVERRIDE_DISABLE in yarn-env.sh, will set the same in the ContainerLaunchContext. Have you tried setting it in the service spec itself to see if it helps ?

Re: Docker on YARN Incorrect Program Arguments

Comma separating the launch_command fields and setting YARN_CONTAINER_RUNTIME_DOCKER_RUN_OVERRIDE_DISABLE=true in the service definition rather than yarn-site.env allowed me to use my custom entrypoint as expected in HDP 3.0.1.

Strangely, exporting YARN_CONTAINER_RUNTIME_DOCKER_RUN_OVERRIDE_DISABLE=true in the yarn-site.env worked fine in my Apache Hadoop 3.1.1 environment, but not in my Ambari-installed HDP 3.0.1 environment. The stdout and stderr redirects are not included in the docker run command in the Apache release. Must be some other setting involved, but I am past my issue, so I will leave it here.

Thanks, @Tarun Parimi!

How to pass args to your app inside the docker when you run it with spark-submit like ../bin/spark-submit --master yarn --conf spark.executorEnv.YARN_CONTAINER_RUNTIME_TYPE=docker --conf spark.executorEnv. YARN_CONTAINER_RUNTIME_DOCKER_IMAGE=test .. ?
