      Description

      We have seen issues on our clusters where the current way of computing CPU usage is having float-arithmetic inaccuracies (the bug is still there in trunk)

      Simple program to illustrate:

      Bar.java
            public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
                  float result = 0.0f;
                  for (int i = 0; i < 7; i++) {
                        if (i == 6) {
                              result += (float) 4 / (float)18;
                        } else {
                              result += (float) 2 / (float)18;
                        }
                  }
                  for (int i = 0; i < 7; i++) {
                        if (i == 6) {
                              result -= (float) 4 / (float)18;
                        } else {
                              result -= (float) 2 / (float)18;
                        }                 
                  }
                  System.out.println(result);
            }

      2017-04-12 05:43:24,014 INFO org.apache.hadoop.yarn.server.nodemanager.containermanager.monitor.ContainersMonitorImpl: Not enough cpu for [container_e3295_1491978508342_0467_01_000030], Current CPU Allocation: [0.8888891], Requested CPU Allocation: [0.11111111]

      There are a few places with this issue:
      1. ResourceUtilization.java - set/getCPU both use float. When ContainerScheduler calls ContainersMonitor.increase/decreaseResourceUtilization, this may lead to issues.

      2. AllocationBasedResourceUtilizationTracker.java - hasResourcesAvailable uses float as well for CPU computation.
