Karthik Kambatla commented on YARN-2154:
----------------------------------------

[~bpodgursky] - I was only observing what the patch seems to be doing. 

The patch prioritizes currently running apps over pending apps. The pending 
apps aren't necessarily starved - subsequent preemptions should handle them. 
[~asuresh] - could you please confirm the same. If this is not the case, I 
agree with [~bpodgursky] that we shouldn't starve small apps.

> Today, FairScheduler uses a spray-gun approach to preemption. Instead, it 
> should only preempt resources that would satisfy the incoming request.
