Junping Du commented on YARN-2344:

I think we should rename the JIRA from JobTracker to ResourceManager.

In such scenarios, if the jobtracker (JT) continues to run, jobs would fail due to initialization
or task failures (due to DFS). We could restart the JT enabling job recovery, during such
scenarios. But restart has proved to be a very intrusive activity, particularly if the JT
is not at fault itself and does not require a restart. The ask is for a admin-controlled feature
to pause the JT which would take it to a state somewhat analogous to the safe mode of DFS.
