Jian He commented on YARN-3480:
-------------------------------

[~hex108], thanks for your explanations.
I can see this will be a problem for long running apps, as the number of 
attempts will just keep increasing.
To be consistent with the attemptFailureValidityWindow for long running apps, 
instead of introducing a global hard limit, How about removing the attempt 
records that's beyond the validity window ?

> Make AM max attempts stored in RMAppImpl and RMStateStore to be configurable

> When RM HA is enabled and running containers are kept across attempts, apps 
> are more likely to finish successfully with more retries(attempts), so it 
> will be better to set 'yarn.resourcemanager.am.max-attempts' larger. However 
> it will make RMStateStore(FileSystem/HDFS/ZK) store more attempts, and make 
> RM recover process much slower. It might be better to set max attempts to be 
> stored in RMStateStore.
> BTW: When 'attemptFailuresValidityInterval'(introduced in YARN-611) is set to 
> a small value, retried attempts might be very large. So we need to delete 
> some attempts stored in RMStateStore and RMStateStore.
