RE: Could not build the program from JAR file.

Hi Gary,

No, I am not starting multiple "per-job clusters".

I didn't configure anything regarding the number of slots per TM, so I guess the default value (1 then).

But on the YARN UI I see that the number of "running containers" varies a lot (13 then 1 then 8 then 2 then 27 then 6 etc...)

Here is the full jobmanager log:


This time it took longer to start (10 minutes)

And completed on this line: 

2018-08-07 14:31:11,852 INFO  org.apache.flink.runtime.executiongraph.ExecutionGraph        - Source: Custom Source -> Sink: Unnamed (1/1) (655509c673d8ae19aac195276ad2c3e6) switched from DEPLOYING to RUNNING.

Thanks a lot for your help and your time,

Hi Florian,

5 minutes sounds too slow. Are you starting multiple "per-job clusters" at the
same time? How many slots do you configure per TM? After you submit the job,
how many resources do you have left in your YARN cluster?

It might be that you are affected by FLINK-9455 [1]: Flink requests
unnecessary resources from YARN and blocks the execution of other jobs
temporarily. The workaround is to configure only one slot per TM.

If the above does not help, can you attach the full ClusterEntrypoint
(JobManager) logs?

Thank you!

So it is now normal that it takes around 5 minutes to start processing ? The job is reading from kafka and writing back into another kafka topic. When I start the job, it takes roughly 5 minutes before I get something in the output topic.

I see a lot of 

2018-08-07 12:20:34,672 INFO  org.apache.flink.yarn.YarnResourceManager                     - Received new container: XXX - Remaining pending container requests: 0
2018-08-07 12:20:34,672 INFO  org.apache.flink.yarn.YarnResourceManager                     - Returning excess container XXX.

I see a lot of those lines during the first five minutes.

I'm not sure I need to have a static set of TMs, but as we have a limited set of nodes, and several jobs, it could be harder to make sure they do not interfere with each other...

You can find more information about the re-worked deployment model here:

TaskManagers are started and shut down according to the slot requirements of
the jobs. It is possible to return to the old behavior by setting

    mode: old

in flink-conf.yaml. However, this mode is deprecated and will be removed soon.
Can you explain why you need to have a static set of TMs?

Indeed, that's the solution.

It was done automatically before with 1.4.2, that's why I missed that part...

Do you have any pointer about the dynamic number of TaskManagers ? I'm curious to know how it works. Is it possible to still fix it ?

Thank you,

Hi Florian,

Can you run

    export HADOOP_CLASSPATH=`hadoop classpath`

before submitting the job [1]?

Moreover, you should not use the -yn parameter. Beginning with Flink 1.5, the
number of TaskManagers is not fixed anymore.

In the log, I can see that:

First exception is a warning, not sure if it is important.

Second one seems to be the one. It tries to find the file "-yn" ???

Hi Florian,

The error message is because of a FileNotFoundException, see here[1]. Is there any more information about the exception. Do you make sure the jar exist?

flink - Apache Flink

Thanks, vino.

Hi Florian,

You write that Flink 1.4.2 works but what version is not working for you?

I also have the same problem with a custom JAR...

With Flink 1.4.2, I have no problem at all. Both the WordCount example and my custom JAR are working...

What do I do wrong ?
