yarn container size

yarn container size

Explorer

under yarn you can configure total space allocation for containers, minimum container size and maximum container size.

this container configuration seems to be linked with the size of the memory on nodes. so the total space allocation for containers is always less than the total memory on the hosts?

but a container is not only memory right? it is also processor cores, disk space, network bandwidth etc.

so where is the accommodation for the rest of these resources (cores, disks etc) in the container sizing?

appreciate the insights.
