             Summary: Support Application timeout feature in YARN. 
                 Key: YARN-3813
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: nijel
             Fix For: 2.8.0

It will be useful to support Application Timeout in YARN. Some use cases are 
not worried about the output of the applications if the application is not 
completed in a specific time. 

The requirement is to show the CDR statistics of last few  minutes, say for 
every 5 minutes. The same Job will run continuously with different dataset.
So one job will be started in every 5 minutes. The estimate time for this task 
is 2 minutes or lesser time. 
If the application is not completing in the given time the output is not useful.

So idea is to support application timeout, with which timeout parameter is 
given while submitting the job. 
Here, user is expecting to finish (complete or kill) the application in the 
given time.

One option for us is to move this logic to Application client (who submit the 
But it will be nice if it can be generic logic and can make more robust.

Kindly provide your suggestions/opinion on this feature. If it sounds good, i 
will update the design doc and prototype patch
