      Description

      This is the MR counterpart to HDFS-1848. Like HDFS volume failure detection, NM disk failure detection checks a subset of the disks, and a subset of the directories. Eg the TT and the NM do not check the root disk for errors unless a local dir resides on them. Even if a local dir resides on the root disk the disk checking code only checks the local dirs so a failure only seen when accessing a part of the disk no hosting the local dirs will not be noticed. The disk that hosts the logs, pid, tmp dirs etc is critical, so if needs to be checked as well, and the NM should shutdown if a critical disk is not available (to prevent MR issues similar to HDFS-1848 and HDFS-2095). Typically people currently work around this limitation by (aside from ignoring it) by using raid-1 for the root disk or a health script that checks the root disk health.
