Varun Vasudev commented on YARN-4309:
-------------------------------------

bq. do we need to worry about -L following links outside of the current 
directory?

find will follow the links outside the current directory upto the maxdepth. 
This is useful to because we symlink to resources outside the work dir from the 
container work dir(like the mapreduce jar, the job conf, etc).

> Add debug information to application logs when a container fails

> Sometimes when a container fails, it can be pretty hard to figure out why it 
> failed.
> My proposal is that if a container fails, we collect information about the 
> container local dir and dump it into the container log dir. Ideally, I'd like 
> to tar up the directory entirely, but I'm not sure of the security and space 
> implications of such a approach. At the very least, we can list all the files 
> in the container local dir, and dump the contents of launch_container.sh(into 
> the container log dir).
> When log aggregation occurs, all this information will automatically get 
> collected and make debugging such failures much easier.
