Manually add the configurations of yarn-site.xml

Once the upgrade to CDP Private Cloud Base is completed, you have to manually add the yarn-site.xml configurations using Cloudera Manager Advanced configuration snippet (Safety Valves).

The fs2cs conversion utility generates two output files: capacity-scheduler.xml and yarn-site.xml. The capacity-scheduler.xml file can be uploaded using the Upgrade Wizard, but the configurations in the yarn-site.xml have to be manually added once the upgrade is completed.

  • Use the fs2cs conversion utility to generate the capacity-scheduler.xml and yarn-site.xml output files.

  • Complete the upgrade process.

  1. In Cloudera Manager, select the YARN service.
  2. Click the Configuration tab.
  3. Search for yarn-site, and find the YARN Service Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for yarn-site.xml.
  4. Copy the content of the yarn-site.xml output file.
  5. Click View as XML and paste the copied content.
    The yarn-site.xml file can contain the following configurations:
    • Continuous scheduling enabled/disabled
    • Continuous scheduling interval
    • Preemption
      • Preemption enabled/disabled
      • Wait time before preemption
      • Wait time before next starvation check
    • Assign multiple enabled/disabled
    • Maximum number of heartbeat assignments
    • Locality threshold per node
    • Locality threshold per rack
    • Size-based weight enabled/disabled
    • Resource calculator class
    • Async scheduling enabled/disabled
  6. Click Save Changes.
  7. Restart the YARN service.
Manually tune the configuration generated by the fs2cs conversion utility using Queue Manager UI and Cloudera Manager Advanced configuration snippet (Safety Valves).
