RE: How to configure container capacity?
Bcc'd dev mailing list.

Hi Andrew,

The memory allocated will always be an integral multiple of minimal allocation unit which is configured via the property "yarn.scheduler.minimum-allocation-mb ". The default configuration for the value is 1024.
If you change the config to 512, the container memory size should be 512 with -Dmapreduce.map.memory.mb=512.

Subject: How to configure container capacity?


Can anyone tell me how to configure the capacity of containers? Which parameters should be set?

I use the following command with -Dmapreduce.map.memory.mb=512, but why is the map container size always 1024?

$HADOOP_COMMON_HOME/bin/hadoop jar
randomwriter -Dmapreduce.job.user.name=$USER
-Dmapreduce.randomwriter.bytespermap=10000 -Ddfs.block.size=536870912
-Dmapreduce.map.memory.mb=512 output

Thank you,
