Re: [VOTE] Merge YARN-321 Generic Application History Service to trunk
Chen He 2014-01-17, 21:55
As a cluster resource management platform, generic history service is
necessary for job-tracing, troubleshooting, fault tolerance, and
performance tuning.
Like StarterLog in Condor, accounting logs in Torque, and so on. However,
generic history service should avoid getting involved into too many details
since some applications may have modules to trace their own histories.
