Subject TaskTracker's totalMemoryAllottedForTasks is -1
Date Wed, 28 Oct 2009 20:06:00 GMT
Going back to the issue:
And having gone over the steps pointed to in the response....I looked at the
TaskTracker, and on startup I see the following error:

WARN org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskTracker: TaskTracker's
totalMemoryAllottedForTasks is -1. TaskMemoryManager is disabled.

A search for the error didn't help. But the slave box had 8GB of ram and my
Xmx is set to:


in mapred-site.xml.

I've tried the following values: 2G, 1G, 512M, 256M
None work.
Also I only have 2 Mappers and 1 Reduce task
