Re: question about preserving data locality in MapReduce with Yarn
The code is slightly hard to follow since it's split between the client and the ApplicationMaster.

The client invokes InputFormat.getSplits to compute locations and writes it to a file in HDFS.
The ApplicationMaster then reads the file and creates resource-requests based on the locations for each input file (3-replicas). See TaskAttemptImpl.dataLocalHosts and TaskAttemptImpl.dataLocalRacks - follow those variables around in the code-base.

> Hi Sandy, thank you very much for the information. It is good to know that MapReduce AM considers the block location information. BTW, I am not very familiar with the concept of splits. Is it specific to MR jobs? If possible, code location would be very helpful for reference as I am trying to implement an application master that needs to consider HDFS data-locality. thx.
