NodeManagers monitor containers w.r.t memory usage, and put containers in cgroups with cpu limits to restrict CPU usage.

So, when YARN runs the containers, how is it ensured that all map containers use less than 1 GB memory and all reduce containers less than 1.5 GB? Is container memory control realized via -Xmx arguments in the scripts generated by YARN to invoke the MR program in the containers?
