Karthik Kambatla commented on YARN-2393:
----------------------------------------

bq. Should we bound maxAMResource by steady fair share instead, which doesn't 
fluctuate? 
If we use steady fairshare, creating many queues can lead to not having enough 
resources to run an AM. Using instantaneous fairshare doesn't let this happen. 
However, it is possible that the amShare becomes greater than what it should be 
for a potentially lower instantaneous fairshare at a later time. We could 
preempt AM containers as well, but need to tread this very carefully.

> Static fair share is a fair share allocation considering all(active/inactive) 
> queues.It would be shown on the UI for better predictability of finish time 
> of applications.
> We would compute static fair share only when needed, like on queue creation, 
> node added/removed. Please see YARN-2026 for discussions on this.
