Subject Re: Application Master High Availability

I just want to clarify a couple of things. The yarn distributed shell is its own framework,
and it does support preserving containers across AM restart. I have tested this. But the MapReduce
framework does not support this feature (see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-6608).
I spoke with Jon Eagles, and he believes that the Tez framework does support the container-preserving

Thanks Eric & Wilfred.
To give you some context, I work on Apache Samza and we have streaming as a
service offering on top of YARN.
Ideally, we would like to ensure in the event of AM restarts, the container
it spawned can still be taken over by the new AM.

"Keep containers across application attempts" seems like an option that
might work for us.
Let me investigate and play with the parameter.

Appreciate your quick response.
