Storm-yarn enables Storm clusters to be deployed into machines managed by Hadoop YARN. It is still a work in progress.
Feel free to ask questions on storm-yarn's mailing list: http://groups.google.com/group/storm-yarn
Please install the following software first:
- Java 7
To run the tests, you execute the following command.
You will see that storm-yarn commands being executed.

If you want to skip the tests you can run
mvn package -DskipTests
You need to install a version of storm on the hadoop gateway.
You also need to place a corresponding storm.zip file in HDFS so it can be shipped to all of the nodes through the distributed cache at
Storm-YARN is now configured to use Netty for communication between spouts and bolts. It's pure JVM based, and thus OS independent.
If you are running storm using zeromq (instead of Netty), you need to augment the standard storm.zip file the needed .so files. This can be done with the not ideally named create-tarball.sh script
Ideally the storm.zip file is a world readable file installed by ops so there is only one copy in the distributed cache ever.
The yarn-storm command provides a way to launch a storm cluster. In the future it is intended to also provide ways to manage the cluster.
To launch a cluster you can run
storm-yarn launch <storm-yarn-config>
storm-yarn-configuration (a yaml file) will be used to launch a Storm cluster. storm-yarn has a number of new config options to configure the storm AM.
- master.initial-num-supervisors is the number of supervisors to launch with storm.
- master.container.size-mb is the size of the container to request. "storm-yarn launch" produces an Application ID, which identify the newly launched Storm master. This Application ID should be used for accessing the Storm master.
To obtain a storm.yaml from the newly launch Storm master, you can run
storm-yarn getStormConfig <storm-yarn-config> --appId <Application-ID> --output <storm.yaml>
storm.yaml will be retrieved from Storm master.
After storing the above storm.yaml in Storm classpath (ex. ~/.storm/storm.yaml), you will invoke standard Storm commands against the Storm cluster on YARN. For example, you run the following command to submit a topology
storm jar <appJar>
For a full list of storm-yarn commands and options you can run
The is no failover when nimbus goes down. Still working on it.
There is no simple way to get to the logs for the different processes.
