--------------------------------

Thanks for your reply, Jun Gong. 
I think it is a good idea to use "release_agent" to clear the empty container 
hierarchys. But I am afaid that does "release_agent" option suit all the cgroup 
versions?
I just test "release_agent" option, maybe some mistake, it does not work now.


> Container hierarchy in cgroup may remain for ever after the container have be 
> terminated

> If we use LinuxContainerExecutor to executor the containers, this question 
> may happens.
> In the common case, when a container run, a corresponding hierarchy will be 
> created in cgroup dir. And when the container terminate, the hierarchy  will 
> be delete in some seconds(this time can be configured by 
> yarn.nodemanager.linux-container-executor.cgroups.delete-delay-ms).
> In the code, I find that, CgroupsLCEResource send a signal to kill container 
> process asynchronously, and in the same time, it will try to delete the 
> container hierarchy  in configured "delete-delay-ms" times. 
> But if the container process be killed for seconds which large than 
> "delete-delay-ms" time, the  container hierarchy  will remain for ever.
