We need a fake stack that will make it easier to perform lifecycle commands such as Start, Stop, Restart, Status, Service Checks etc.
This stack will eventually support UI themes, Kerberos, Alerts, etc.
For now, the PERF stack should have 8+ services (HDFS, YARN, MR, ZK, plus dummy ones like Happy, Sleepy, Grumpy, etc).
We do want some of the complexity of the Hadoop core services and their configs, and we also want really simple services (like the dwarfs) that can be deployed on their own.
This stack should serve as a sample for how to implement a new stack, and also abstract some of the complexity of the HDP stack in order to run performance tests that stress the server by overloading it with heartbeats, alerts, etc.
