Subject RE: How to configure container capacity?

Hi Andrew,

The memory allocated will always be an integral multiple of minimal allocation unit which
is configured via the property "yarn.scheduler.minimum-allocation-mb	". The default configuration
for the value is 1024.
If you change the config to 512, the container memory size should be 512 with -Dmapreduce.map.memory.mb=512.

Can anyone tell me how to configure the capacity of containers? Which parameters should be

I use the following command with -Dmapreduce.map.memory.mb=512, but why is the map container
size always 1024?

$HADOOP_COMMON_HOME/bin/hadoop jar
randomwriter -Dmapreduce.job.user.name=$USER
-Dmapreduce.randomwriter.bytespermap=10000 -Ddfs.block.size=536870912
-Dmapreduce.map.memory.mb=512 output

Thank you,
