Defining the allocation of resources at a given time

Configuration sets define the allocation of resources across pools while scheduling rules define configuration set activity.

Configuration Sets define the allocation of resources across pools that can be active at a given time. For example, you can define "daytime" and "off hour" configuration sets, for which you specify different resource allocations during the daytime and for the remaining time of the week.

Once you have defined configuration sets, you can configure limits such as weight, minimum and maximum memory and virtual cores, and maximum running applications.

A scheduling rule defines when a configuration set is active. The configurations in the configuration set are propagated to the fair scheduler allocation file as required by the schedule. The updated files are stored in the YARN ResourceManager configuration directory /var/run/cloudera-scm-agent/process/nn-yarn-RESOURCEMANAGER on the host running the ResourceManager role.
