Re: YARN Pi example job stuck at 0%(No MR tasks are started by ResourceManager)
I think its alright if we may fail the app if it requests what is
impossible, rather than log or wait for an admin to come along and fix
it in runtime. Please do file a JIRA.

The max allocation value can perhaps also be dynamically set to the
maximum offered RAM value across the NMs that are live, or a fraction
of it? That is what caused this hang in the first place (by letting it
go in as a valid request, since default max alloc is about 10 GB).
