Subject Re: Task status query

Yep, typically, the AM should pass it's host:port to the task as part of either the cmd-line
for the task or in it's env. That is what is done by MR AM.

port/URI to the tasks when they are spawned as command-line or environment?

talk to the AM and report their individual progress and counters back to it, via a specific
protocol (over the network), giving the AM more data to compute an near-accurate global progress.
