    Description

      When AppStatusListener removes dead executors in excess of spark.ui.retainedDeadExecutors, it looks like it does so in an essentially random order:

      Based on the current code it looks like we only index based on "active" but don't perform any secondary indexing or sorting based on the age / ID of the executor.

      Instead, I think it might make sense to remove the oldest executors first, similar to how we order by "completionTime" when cleaning up old stages.

      I think we should also consider making a higher default of spark.ui.retainedDeadExecutors: it currently defaults to 100 but this seems really low in comparison to the total number of retained tasks / stages / jobs (which collectively take much more space to store). Maybe ~1000 is a safe default?
