             Summary: Make NM's version information useful for upgrade
                 Key: YARN-4316
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-4316
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: nodemanager
            Reporter: Jun Gong
            Assignee: Jun Gong
            Priority: Minor


When upgrading all NM to a new bug fix version, we often upgrade some NM first, 
then upgrade rest NM if all looks right. We could avoid breakdown whole cluster 
in this way if new version of NM does not work well. But there is no easy way 
to tell us whether we have missed upgrading some NM.

We could see all NM's version info in RM's web page as attached. These version 
info are too generic, e.g. 2.4.1, 2.6.1, 2.6.2. For small bug fix version, 
version will remain same. If we could change the version info more 
detailed(e.g. 2.4.1.12), we could make sure whether we have upgrade all NM to 
the new bug fix version.

I propose to add a new config(yarn.nodemanager.version) in yarn-site.xml to 
solve this problem. When upgrading NM, we configure it to the new version at 
the same time. NM will report this version to RM, then we could see it.
