             Summary: Intermittent failure for testcase 
                 Key: YARN-2252
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-2252
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: scheduler
    Affects Versions: trunk-win
            Reporter: Ratandeep Ratti

This test-case is failing sporadically on my machine. I think I have a 
plausible explanation  for this.

It seems that when the Scheduler is being asked for resources, the resource 
requests that are being constructed have no preference for the hosts (nodes).
The two mock hosts constructed, both have a memory of 8192 mb.
The containers(resources) being requested each require a memory of 1024mb, 
hence a single node can execute both the resource requests for the application.
In the end of the test-case it is being asserted that the containers (resource 
requests) be executed on different nodes, but since we haven't specified any 
preferences for nodes when requesting the resources, the scheduler (at times) 
executes both the containers (requests) on the same node.
