-Re: How mapred.map.child.java.opts influence the Container resource allocation
The *container* is a generic concept which allows the ResourceManager to provide you a specific amount of resources (memory, cpu etc.).
mapred.map.child.java.opts is part of the cmd-line of the Map task's jvm which specifies the heap size.
So, in YARN, mapred.map.child.java.opts should be less than memory allocated to container.
Remember that container memory is physical memory of the unix process, while mapred.map.child.java.opts is heap size which doesn't account for non-heap memory.
So, with a container size of 2G, the max heap size you can allocate is ~1.6G or so.
