Jun Gong commented on YARN-3998:
--------------------------------

[~vvasudev] Thanks for the attention and suggestion. 

We have a patch for it, it implemented the policy "restart on all errors". Will 
attach a patch if it is OK.

> Add retry-times to let NM re-launch container when it fails to run

> I'd like to add a field(retry-times) in ContainerLaunchContext. When AM 
> launches containers, it could specify the value. Then NM will re-launch the 
> container 'retry-times' times when it fails to run(e.g.exit code is not 0). 
> It will save a lot of time. It avoids container localization. RM does not 
> need to re-schedule the container. And local files in container's working 
> directory will be left for re-use.(If container have downloaded some big 
> files, it does not need to re-download them when running again.) 
> We find it is useful in systems like Storm.
