Add queues using YARN Queue Manager UI

The Capacity Scheduler has a predefined queue called root. All queues in the system are children of the root queue. Each child queue is tied to its parent queue but children queues do not inherit properties directly from the parent queue unless otherwise specified.

In Cloudera Manager, you can use the YARN Queue Manager UI service to add queues.

  1. In Cloudera Manager, select Clusters > YARN Queue Manager UI service.

  2. Click on the three vertical dots on the root and select the Add Child Queue option.

  3. Enter the name of the queue, Configured Capacity, and Maximum Capacity values for the queue.

  4. Click Save.

    Repeat the above steps to add more parent and child queues.
