Wangda Tan commented on YARN-2896:
----------------------------------

I have same question as [~eepayne], beyond readability (user can know priority 
of an app is "high" instead of -1), is there any must-have reason to make 
priority to be text? 

Priority setting in other systems like 
Linux: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-lpic1-v3-103-6/
Moab: https://computing.llnl.gov/tutorials/moab/#Priority
Slurm: https://computing.llnl.gov/linux/slurm/priority_multifactor.html
Are all using numbers, math operations can be applied on priorities, such as 
job_priority = queue_priority * user_priority.

Thanks,
Wangda
