Subject Re: Scaling hadoop up

I've seen this with 0.12.1.

Currently I'm just running the jobtracker and namenode on one machine, with
tasktrackers & datanodes on all the others (no secondarynamenode).  It seems
like it might help to put the jobtracker and namenode on different machines;
is there anything else I could try?
