Uncaught exception in ContainersMonitorImpl during relaunch due to the process ID changing

      In the case of a container relaunch event, the container ID is reused but a new process is spawned. For resource monitoring, ContainersMonitorImpl will obtain the new PID post relaunch and initialize the process tree monitoring. As part of this initialization, a tag called ContainerPid, whose value is the PID for the container, is populated for the metrics associated with the container. If the prior container failed after its process started, the original PID will already be populated for the container, resulting in the MetricsException below.

      MetricsRegistry provides a tag method that allows for updating the value of an existing tag. Updating the value ensures that the PID associated with container is the currently running process, which appears to be an appropriate fix. However, it's unclear how this tag might be being used by other systems. I'm not finding any usage in Hadoop itself.
