Karthik Kambatla commented on YARN-2139:
----------------------------------------

The NMs will specify the amount of disk resources on a node, and the RM 
automatically allocates a fixed amount to each container. For example, each NM 
could report a vdisks value equal to the number of disks on the node, and each 
container would get one vdisk. That way, we limit the number of containers 
running on a node to number of disks on that node.

> YARN should consider disk as another resource for (1) scheduling tasks on 
> nodes, (2) isolation at runtime, (3) spindle locality.
