    Summary: YARN should warn about nodes with poor clock synchronization  
(was: A hadoop cluster needs clock synchronization)

>          Issue Type: Bug

>
> As a distributed system, a hadoop cluster wants the clock on all the 
> participating hosts synchronized. Otherwise, some problems might happen. For 
> example, in YARN-2251, due to the clock on the host for the task container 
> falls behind that on the host of the AM container, the computed elapsed time 
> (the diff between the timestamps produced on two hosts) becomes negative.
> In YARN-2251, we tried to mask the negative elapsed time. However, we should 
> seek for a decent long term solution, such as providing mechanism to do and 
> check clock synchronization.
