Subject Re: YARN Resource Allocation When Memory is Very Small
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2016 21:14:49 GMT
Hi Nico!

The RM is configured with a minimum allocation. Take a look at
"yarn.scheduler.minimum-allocation-mb" . You can also read through code
Please note that the code above is for the trunk branch, you should go look
in the branch that you are running. Thanks to great work from some folks,
this code has been evolving a lot recently.
