Ashwin Shankar commented on YARN-4011:

hey [~jlowe], have you encountered this issue before at Yahoo ? Also would it 
make sense to have a feature on NM to limit the amount of data
user/app can write to nm-local-dir to protect other users ? I'm looking into 
related jiras like YARN-1781, which could be a band-aid to this problem.

>                 Key: YARN-4011
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-4011
>             Project: Hadoop YARN
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: yarn
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.0
>            Reporter: Ashwin Shankar
> We observed jobs failed since tasks couldn't launch on nodes due to 
> "java.io.IOException No space left on device". 
> On digging in further, we found a rogue job which filled up disk.
> Specifically it was wrote a lot of map spills(like 
> attempt_1432082376223_461647_m_000421_0_spill_10000.out) to nm-local-dir 
> causing disk to fill up, and it failed/got killed, but didn't clean up its 
> files in nm-local-dir.
> So the disk remained full, causing subsequent jobs to fail.
