Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-6118) Uber-mode decision does not consider -Xmx

not every detail is covered in examples. it is there just to communicate the idea.

>                 Key: MAPREDUCE-6118
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-6118
>             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Maysam Yabandeh
>            Priority: Minor
> Current the decision on using uber-mode is based on the mapper container size and the
AM container size. However the actual memory at AM is limited by -Xmx options passed via yarn.app.mapreduce.am.command-opts.
> For example: AM memory: 4G, yarn.app.mapreduce.am.command-opts=-Xmx2048GB, mapper memory:
3GB. Here the uber job could face OOM whereas a non-uber execution would not.
> We faced this problem recently and forced to disable uber-mode to circumvent the problem.
One idea, although a bit ugly, is to parse jvm opts, extract Xmx, and take it into account
for uber-mode decision.
