In this case you would have 3 AM for MR jobs and 2 more AMs, one for each Giraph job.
Makes a total of 5 AMs.

In the documentation and papers about Apache YARN, they say that an Application Master is launched for every application and it is this that manages resources and scheduling for applications on Hadoop.

For example, if you submit 3 MapReduce jobs, and 2 Giraph jobs to your cluster, does the Resource Manager spawn 2 AMs (one to manage all MapReduce jobs and one to manage all Giraph jobs) or does it spawn 5 AMs (one for each job)?
