Subject Re: Yarn web UI shows more memory used than actual
Date Sat, 13 Aug 2016 17:44:18 GMT
The RM page will show the combined container memory usage.  If you have 
a significant difference between any or all of

1) actual process memory usage
2) JVM heap size
3) container maximum

then you will have significant memory underutilization.
