Re: Hadoop efficient resource isolation
This is one reason to consider virtualizing Hadoop clusters. The idea is to create multiple virtual clusters on a single physical cluster and apply various kinds of resource controls (CPU, memory, I/O) on the virtual machines that make up each virtual cluster. Then if any application or VM within a virtual cluster crashes, hangs, or tries to hog resources, the other virtual clusters will be unaffected. Multi-tenancy is also enabled since the isolation between virtual clusters is secure.

Supporting a multiuser scenario like this is always hard under Hadoop. There are a few configuration knobs that offer some administrative control and protection.

Specifically for the problem you describe, you could probably set Mapreduce.{map|reduce}.child.ulimit on the tasktrackers, so that any job that is exceeding these limits will be killed. Of course, a side effect of this would be that jobs would be bound by some limits even if they legitimately require more memory.
But you could try starting with this.

Hi Guys,
It's possible isolation job submission for hadoop cluster, we currently running 48 machine cluster. we monitor Hadoop is not provides efficient resource isolation. In my case we ran for tech and research pool, When tech job some memory leak will haven, It's occupy the hole cluster. Finally we figure out issue with tech job. It's screwed up hole hadoop cluster. finally 10 data node are dead.
Any prevention of job submission efficient way resource allocation. When something wrong in particular job, effect particular pool, Not effect others job. Any way to archive this
Please guide me guys.
My idea is, When tech user submit job means only apply job in for my case submit 24 machine. other machine only for research user.

It's will prevent the memory leak problem.

Did I learn something today? If not, I wasted it.
