Hadoop YARN RPC (part I)


I have spent some time digging into YARN RPC source codes. Personally, I like the use of Factory pattern to inject different RPC proxy client protocol and server implementations to the framework. It looks way cleaner and better compared to the older versions of Hadoop.

For example: RpcServerFactoryPBImpl is the implementation of RpcServerFactory interface to create Protobuf RPC Server. Basically, it delegates the creation using the standard Hadoop RPC class.

Look at the following snippet in RpcServerFactoryPBImpl,

We could create a new type of RPC Server Factory called RpcServerFactoryMyOwnImpl that implements the above createServer method which would return our own RPC Server.

In YARN framework, HadoopYarnProtoRPC is the class uses these factories.
Basically, it calls RpcFactoryProvider.getServerFactory(conf) to get the right RpcServerFactory implementation.
