> Consider the following
> {code:title=JobTracker.java|borderStyle=solid}
> private synchronized boolean processHeartbeat(
>                                                 TaskTrackerStatus trackerStatus, boolean
initialContact) {
>     String trackerName = trackerStatus.getTrackerName();
>     trackerStatus.setLastSeen(System.currentTimeMillis());
> {code}
> Here, the call to {{System.currentTimeMillis()}} on every call to {{JobTracker.processHeartbeat()}}
might prove costly. While testing/benchmarking HADOOP-2119, we recorded that the JobTracker
was able to serve ~130 tasks/sec. So that means we might make ~130 calls to {{System.currentTimeMillis()}}
per second. I think in these cases (_last-seen-status_ etc) such a high level of accuracy
in terms of timestamp is unnecessary and hence can be avoided.
