Jun Gong commented on YARN-3998:
--------------------------------

[~jlowe] Thanks for the comment. 

I agree with you. I am not sure how many applications need this feature. If the 
number is large, it might be better to put this functionality in YARN, then 
applications themselves do not need add this. In our system, we write a new AM 
and add this feature in YARN, then we find Storm also need it.

> I'd like to add a field(retry-times) in ContainerLaunchContext. When AM 
> launches containers, it could specify the value. Then NM will re-launch the 
> container 'retry-times' times when it fails to run(e.g.exit code is not 0). 
> It will save a lot of time. It avoids container localization. RM does not 
> need to re-schedule the container. And local files in container's working 
> directory will be left for re-use.(If container have downloaded some big 
> files, it does not need to re-download them when running again.) 
> We find it is useful in systems like Storm.
