Mesos is great at allocating cluster resources for schedulers. However, there is no way to downsize your cluster, short of pulling the plug on machines! How do you defragment or roll a kernel upgrade through your cluster? Most importantly, how do you do so without violating any frameworks’ SLAs?

This talk will introduce Inverse Offers and present different use cases for them. Maintenance Primitives, a feature implemented using Inverse Offers will be used as an example to present the requirements and challenges of cooperatively deallocating resources from a running cluster.

Guidelines, strategies, and trade-offs with respect to Inverse Offers and Maintenance Primitives for framework writers as well as cluster operators will be presented.
