and Vinod Kone.


Rebased. NNFR.

Bugs: MESOS-2600

Repository: mesos


This involved a lot more challenges than I anticipated, I've captured the various approaches
and limitations and deal-breakers of those approaches here: [Master Endpoint Implementation

Key points:

* This is a stop-gap solution until we shift the offer creation/management logic from the
master to the allocator.
* `updateAvailable` and `updateSlave` are kept separate because
  (1) `updateAvailable` is allowed to fail whereas `updateSlave` must not.
  (2) `updateAvailable` returns a `Future` whereas `updateSlave` does not.
  (3) `updateAvailable` never leaves the allocator in an over-allocated state and must not,
whereas `updateSlave` does, and can.
* The algorithm:
    * Initially, the master pessimistically assume that what seems like "available" resources
will be gone.
      This is due to the race between the allocator scheduling an `allocate` call to itself
vs master's
      `allocator->updateAvailable` invocation.
      As such, we first try to satisfy the request only with the offered resources.
    * We greedily rescind one offer at a time until we've rescinded sufficiently many offers.
      IMPORTANT: We perform `recoverResources(..., Filters())` which has a default `refuse_sec`
of 5 seconds,
      rather than `recoverResources(..., None())` so that we can virtually always win the
race against `allocate`.
      In the rare case that we do lose, no disaster occurs. We simply fail to satisfy the
    * If we still don't have enough resources after resciding all offers, be semi-optimistic
and forward the
      request to the allocator since there may be available resources to satisfy the request.
    * If the allocator returns a failure, report the error to the user with `Conflict`.

This approach is clearly not ideal, since we would prefer to rescind as little offers as possible.
