I need help understanding the YARN ResourceManager Active/Standby behavior.
Two nodes are configured to host the YARN ResourceManager service.
One node acts as "Active" while the other is "Standby".
High Availability is turned off. If the "Active" service is terminated, a fail-over should not occur.
In an attempt to better understand how the YARN ResourceManager functions, I stopped the "Active" service to study the log output. A fail-over did not occur, as expected in my statement above. When starting the "Active" service back up, I found the service relabeled as "Standby". Well over 5 minutes have passed and the service remains labeled as "Standby".
At this point, there are two "Standby" services. Only the original "Active" service shows log activity, as expected. The log activity displays a number of Metrics errors:
No live collector to send metrics to. Metrics to be sent will be discarded. This message will be skipped for the next 20 times.
