Re: Howto kill a container?
Hi Chris

The AM should send a stop container request to the ContainerManager to kill the container in question. This will trigger a kill event to the running container and eventually, when the AM talks to the RM, the killed container would be part of the completed containers list in allocate response.

I assume that there’s a way for the AM to to tell the RM to tell the NM to kill the container, or that there’s a way for the container to get its current state, and see if it’s been released so that it can shutdown gracefully.
