Mesos

19 Apr 2017 [Benjamin Hindman / Bertrand]

Description:

Apache Mesos abstracts CPU, memory, storage, and other compute
resources away from machines (physical or virtual), enabling
fault-tolerant and elastic distributed systems to easily be built and
run effectively.

Issues:

There are no Board-level issues at this time.

Activity:

The project continues to see new bug reports, bug fixes, features,
reviews and releases. The mailing lists, slack and IRC channels are
also very much active with healthy discussions.

Current plans:

Mesos 1.2.1 is planned for April.
Mesos 1.3 is planned for May-June time frame.

MesosCon Asia CFP deadline has passed and we received a healthy 66
submissions. Community vote for conference program is next week. Also,
working on sponsorship and publicity.

New committers:

Kevin Klues was voted in as committer and PMC member on 2017-02-22.

At least 2 other contributors are in the queue and we are actively
working to nominate them as committers.

Committer diversity:

3 different organizations (Mesosphere, IBM, independent) were
represented in the last 4 committers added to the project.

One of the contributors we are working to nominate also belongs to an
organization different from above, which is great!

## Activity ##

The project continues to see new bug reports, bug fixes, features,
reviews and releases. The mailing list and IRC channel are also very
much active with healthy discussions. We have also added a new slack
team http://mesos.slack.com to reach wider audience.

MesosCon Denver was a great success. The keynotes, presentations and
events were all well received. The talks have been uploaded to
YouTube.

Mesos 1.0-RC1 was announced during MesosCon. The RC has gone through
rigorous testing for the past few weeks and a new RC2 has been cut on
2016/08/06 based on the feedback. Note that we are providing extended
time for voting since this is a major release. Can anyone from ASF
comms team help us in promoting the 1.0 release? Please ping
benh@apache.org if this is possible!

In addition to the aforementioned Slack team, we are actively
undertaking steps to improve community participation. Cleaning up
stale reviews, tracking contributor affiliations (to measure
diversity) and doing demos during community syncs are just a few
examples of this effort.

## General ##

The project and contributors continues to grow. The community has
bi-weekly meetings as well as a handful of working groups that are
addressing specific components. We are starting to prepare for a 2-3
different MesosCons this year (Denver, Europe, and China). We're also
planning on doing a 1.0 release in the coming months.

## Releases ##

 * Apache Mesos 0.23.1 (2015-09-21)
 * Apache Mesos 0.22.2 (2015-09-23)

## PMC/Committership ##

No new committers or PMC members were added in November or December,
but we have a handful of candidates that the community is currently
proposing. The last added members:

 * Voted to add Joris Van Remoortere as a PMC and Committer on 2015-09-20.
 * Voted to add Michael Park as a PMC and Committer on 2015-07-28.
 * Voted to add Kapil Arya as a PMC and Committer on 2015-10-06.

## Community ##

 * Added more organizations to the 'Powered By Mesos' list, including
   YP.com.

 * The community is generally happy with our new monthly release
   cadence, but it has made backwards compatibility trickier to
   negotiate (although, see below, 1.0 release will help).

 * The community would like to do our 1.0 release. Vinod Kone, a long
   time PMC and committer member will be acting as a project manager
   for this release.

 * We're preparing for multiple MesosCon's this year organized by the
   Linux Foundation. The first is planned for Denver June 1-2,
   2016. Final dates and location for Europe have not been
   secured. We're also investigating doing one in China as there are
   some large users and a community developing there.

 * A new member in the community is Nvidia, who is working on adding
   GPU support to Mesos.

AI: Doug to pursue a report for Mesos

16 Oct 2013 [Benjamin Hindman / Chris]

Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that provides resource sharing and
isolation across cluster applications.

## Releases ##

 * Apache Mesos 0.14.0 (out for vote)

The primary feature in the 0.14.0 release is "slave recovery" which
allows slaves to restart (e.g., in order to upgrade, or after a
crash) to recover and "reconnect" with live executors/tasks. This was
a much anticpated feature that Twitter engineer and Mesos committer
Vinod Kone has been working on for a while.

Regarding releases, we plan to move to a model where the conversation
around releases will take place on a public JIRA ticket rather than
via release candidate tags. We hope this will bring more people into
the community and help them contribute to and vet releases.

## Community ##

 * No new committers added in the past month. Last committer and PMC
   member added on 2013-08-05. We have 2 contributors that we'll
   likely be adding as committers imminently.

 * 42/37 created/resolved JIRA issues in last 30 days.

 * A meet up was hosted in Washington D.C. in early October.

 * The Google Summer of Code project has concluded. The committers
   used the contributions of the GSOC to complete the authentication
   component of Mesos.

for more easily running frameworks like Hadoop (just as 0.12.1
did). The release also includes the beta stage of the "slave recovery"
feature that has been being worked on for quite some time (the 0.14.0
release will make this feature stable).

## Community ##

 * No new committers added in the past month. Last committer and PMC
   member added on 2013-08-05.

 * 23/17 created/resolved JIRA issues in last 30 days.

 * 101 messages to user@mesos.apache.org (August - September), which
   is another improvement!

 * Twitter hosted a meet up in NYC on August 20 with a 60 - 80 person
   audience. Hubspot hosted a meet up in Boston with about 30 people,
   and a meetup was also held in Austin with close to 50 people.

 * The Google Summer of Code project is wrapping down. Some of the
   committers are building upon and expanding the work done by the
   student in an effort to get some of the code committed back to the
   project.

 * There have been a lot of packaging scripts pushed back from the
   community but we haven't successfully gotten them standardized (do
   configuration the same way, use the same/similar defaults) and
   committed. Hopefully we can put the time in to try and make this a
   priority before the 0.15.0 release.

Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that provides resource sharing and
isolation across cluster applications.

## General ##

All but a few loose ends remain for the graduation process. We completed a
press release at
https://blogs.apache.org/foundation/entry/the_apache_software_foundation_announces45
along with rolling out our new website at http://mesos.apache.org.

## Releases ##

 * Apache Mesos 0.12.1 (2013-08-13)

The 0.12.1 release included some bug fixes and back ported features for more
easily running frameworks like Hadoop. The release was voted on successfully
but was a bit delayed due to some infrastructure tickets that needed to get
performed in order to publish releases to dist.apache.org. We're on the verge
of releasing 0.13.0 as well!

## Community ##

 * Added 2 new committers and PMC members:
     Dave Lester (dlester) on 2013-08-05
     Ross Allen (ssorallen) on 2013-08-05

 * 92/67 created/resolved JIRA issues in last 30 days.

 * 51 messages to user@mesos.apache.org (July - August), which is a
   tremendous improvement but we're looking to add even more traffic
   there. 1796 messages to dev@mesos.apache.org (July - August).

 * Twitter hosted a meetup for the project on July 25 where we had
   talks from Vinod Kone (Twitter) on running Jenkins on Mesos and
   Brenden Matthews (Airbnb) on running Hadoop on Mesos. We have a
   meetup in NYC planned for August 20th.

 * We are (still) part of the Google Summer of Code:
     Project: Security and Authentication Support

## General ##

The project is still finishing the incubator graduation process
(waiting for infrastructure updates). As part of the graduation
process we have a new logo (goo.gl/5xTsZ) and a new website in
progress (goo.gl/ygH4j).

## Releases ##

 * Apache Mesos 0.11.0 (2013-06-02)
 * Apache Mesos 0.12.0 (2013-06-17)

These releases contain bugfixes and improvements, notably new
functionality with Linux control groups. The next release (0.13.0,
curently at 0.13.0-rc2) will include the most significant new feature
(slave recovery) in the last 2 releases.

## Community ##

 * Added 3 new committers and PMC members:
     Thomas Marshall (tmarshall)
     Charles Reiss (woggle)
     Brenden Matthews (brenden)

 * 111/184 created/resolved JIRA issues in last 90 days.

 * 3074 messages to dev/user@mesos.apache.org (May - July). We need to
   work on getting more user questions to user@, the precedent has
   been most users send questions to dev@.

 * Box hosted a meetup for the project (goo.gl/R6WZZ) and we have
   another meetup scheduled for July 25.

Mesos is a cluster manager that provides resource sharing and
isolation across cluster applications.

Mesos has been incubating since 2010-12-23.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

 1. Improved documentation and support using ASF Mesos Wiki.
 2. Roll an 0.11.0 release.
 3. More interaction on the dev lists besides those from Review Board/JIRA.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

The project currently only has 1 active mentor, Chris Mattmann. Chris
has been able to get Paul Ramirez and Andrew Hart, both IPMC members,
to help mentor as well when needed (e.g., with release VOTE'ing), but
it's still been pretty scarce. Chris brought this up to the IPMC in
threads before, but it went without a reply.

How has the community developed since the last report?

Ben Mahler was added as a PPMC member and committer on the project.

We've seen an increase in activity on the mailing list. Airbnb has
been increasingly using Mesos, not only for Chronos, but also for
Hadoop (using our newly written Hadoop framework). There has also been
a production engineering meetup where Mesos was presented:
http://www.meetup.com/SF-Bay-Area-Large-Scale-Production-Engineering/event
s/97563092/

How has the project developed since the last report?

The project has moved its source repo to ASF Git per
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6065.

We need to get our website properly ASF branded.
We also need to move towards more discussions on the dev list
that aren't shepherded by automated tools (Review Board, and JIRA).
This would make it easier to follow conversations, and to encourage
new contributors to be able to discuss the code, and its stewardship.

On top of the usual bug fixes and reliability improvements, we've
implemented resource monitoring to gain visibility into the resource
consumption of executors running in Mesos. We are also much closer to
shipping a feature that allows the slave to upgrade gracefully
(without killing all tasks underneath it).

Mesos is a cluster manager that provides resource sharing and

Mesos has been incubating since 2010-12-23.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

1. Add more committers (see "issues" below).
2. Do more releases (see "issues" below).
3. Grow community (do more meetups and try and get more people interested
in hacking on codebase rather than just using the software).

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware
of?

We've had issues getting enough votes for adding committers and doing
releases. We recently added a new mentor (thank you Jakob Homan!) who
promptly helped out on one of our stalled releases, but we still have yet
to conclude a committer vote (to be clear, the vote has received unanimous
+1's from all existing committers, but nothing from any mentors).

How has the community developed since the last report?

We performed a "meetup" at AirBnB which drew a large crowd. The mailing
list continued to be active in December. People are generally interested
and excited about the project, but we have not gotten very many developers
working in the codebase. We hope to rectify this in the coming months by
holding some developer specific meetups to talk about working on and
contributing to the project.

How has the project developed since the last report?

There were a considerable number of bug fixes, especially around the use of
Linux cgroups for doing resource isolation. There was also a lot of work
done on the slave/worker component of the system to enable upgrading Mesos
without killing all tasks/processes that it is managing. See
https://reviews.apache.org/dashboard/?view=to-group&group=mesos.

Mesos is a scalable cluster manager that can dynamically share resources
between multiple computing frameworks, including Hadoop, Spark, MPI, and Storm.

Mesos entered incubation on December 23, 2010.

Progress since the last report:

 - Added mesos-0.9.0-incubating.jar to Maven central.
 - Improved build to include warnings and errors.
 - Fixes related to ZooKeeper usage to deal with network partitions.
 - Committed cgroups isolation module and additional updates and fixes.
 - Numerous updates to webui, including preliminary access to files of
   running frameworks.
 - Lots of reviews (https://reviews.apache.org/dashboard/?view=to-group&group=mesos).

Top priorities prior to graduation:

 - Continue to grow community (lots of questions on the mailing list).
 - Add more committers
 - Establish a 6-week release cadence.

Issues for Incubator PMC or ASF Board:

 Not all committers have access to Jenkins, which makes updating tests
 a slow bottlenecked process.

Mesos is a scalable cluster manager that can dynamically share resources
between multiple computing frameworks, including Hadoop, Spark and MPI.

Mesos entered incubation on December 23, 2010.

Progress since the last report:

* Shooting for an end of January release. Hope to call a release vote by
  early next week.
* Internal Twitter repo almost eliminated (all code being developed through
  Apache).
* Documentation added (in anticipation of end of month release).
* Support for Mac OS X Lion almost complete (expected to be included in end
  of month release).
* New autotools support almost complete (expected to be included in of end
  of month release).
* Mesos provided replicated log deployed in production (and optimized).
* New web UI, including task history viewing, committed.
* Features and bug fixes contributed by 3+ new contributors.

Top priorities prior to graduation:

* Making our first release (we want to do that this month).
* Adding more committers to the project from the various developers that
  have contributed to Mesos.

Issues for Incubator PMC or ASF Board:

 * None at this time.

26 Oct 2011

* Implementation of a replicated log has been completed (based on Paxos).
Next steps will be to use the log to enable the Mesos masters to have an
accurate snapshot of the currently running frameworks, currently connected
slaves, etc. This will enable the Mesos master to be able to launch the
schedulers rather than them needing to be launched independently. In
addition, the log will be useful to give to schedulers that want
high-availability.

* Numerous bugs have been fixed by new contributors: Vinod Kone, Brian
Wickman, John Sirois.

* Numerous bug fixes and features were added surrounding the interaction
Mesos has with ZooKeeper, including in-process ZooKeeper testing
(contributed by John Sirois).

* Progress has been made on moving the build system to autotools. We'd like
to accomplish this before trying to do a release.

Project development
* Since the last report, we completed a migration to protocol buffer based
communication (to enable rolling upgrades), several fault tolerance
improvements, several fixes to Linux Container based isolation, a new client
API based on protocol buffers to allow applications to also work on future
versions, and porting existing applications (e.g. Hadoop) to use the new
API.

Most important issues to address
* Put together a first incubating release of Mesos.
* Grow the community and add more committers.
