> It should be possible to specify a limit to the number of tasks per job permitted to
run simultaneously.  If, for example, you have a cluster of 50 nodes, with 100 map task slots
and 100 reduce task slots, and the configured limit is 25 simultaneous tasks/job, then four
or more jobs will be able to run at a time.  This will permit short jobs to pass longer-running
jobs.  This also avoids some problems we've seen with HOD, where nodes are underutilized in
their tail, and it should permit improved input locality.
