> We should do transfers of map outputs at the granularity of  *total-bytes-transferred*
rather than the current way of transferring a single file and then closing the connection
to the server. A single TaskTracker might have a couple of map output files for a given reduce,
and we should transfer multiple of them (upto a certain total size) in a single connection
to the TaskTracker. Using HTTP-1.1's keep-alive connection would help since it would keep
the connection open for more than one file transfer. We should limit the transfers to a certain
size so that we don't hold up a jetty thread indefinitely (and cause timeouts for other clients).
> Overall, this should give us improved performance.
