Cloudera’s Fair Scheduler vs. Capacity Scheduler, which one is the best option to choose? What are the main differences between these two schedulers?

I am not able to understand the difference between Fair and capacity scheduler. From what I have read I understood that they both are identical except for the fact that capacity scheduler has FIFO for the users within a queue. I am not sure what this means and if this is the complete truth. So it will be really helpful if someone can explain this is plain and simple words.

Thanks for the links,
But this has caused even more confusion! in Apache documentation for Capacity scheduling it is mentioned
Where as in Cloudera documentation : Job Scheduling in Apache Hadoop
Both are contradictory! So, once again, please clarify what is the actual behavior and the difference between these two scheduling methods.

The Cloudera "documentation" you reference here is actually an 8-year-old blog post. I would defer to the more current docs.
