> The jobtracker relies on task to send heartbeats  to know the tasks are still alive.
> There is a 600 seconds timeout preset.
> hadoop streaming also uses input to or output from the program it spawns to indicate
progress, sending appropriate heartbeats.
> Some spawned programs spend longer that 600 seconds without any output while being perfectly
healthy.
> It would be good to enhance the interface between hadoop streaming and the programs it
spawns to track a healthy program in the absense of output.
> There are certain dangers with this protocol: e.g. a task can run a separate thread that
does nothing but send "i'm alive" message.   This would be a user bug to abuse the API in
such way.
