Subject Re: Memory settings in hadoop YARN
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2014 13:31:06 GMT
Hi Narayanan,
I've read a great blog post by Rohit Bakhshi before, recommend it to you :
http://hortonworks.com/blog/how-to-plan-and-configure-yarn-in-hdp-2-0/. I
think most your questions are covered by this blog post. Please let me know
if you have more questions.

Thanks,
Wangda Tan
