Subject Re: Randomly failing test

The output on MAPREDUCE-4094 is no longer available, but a failed job
during an integration test could be traced to nondeterminism anywhere
in that chain. The "flakiness" you observe is common to many Hadoop
integration tests.

The purpose of the test is to verify that 1) the merge works when some
segments are retained in memory during the reduce 2) the tuning
parameters for the reduce have the expected effect. -C

less flaky?  I see test failures mentioned in MAPREDUCE-4094 and MAPREDUCE-4096 but no fix
is available so far.
