MapReduce Performance Improvements using forced heartbeat 
----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-2634
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-2634
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Abhijit Suresh Shingate
            Priority: Minor


Following are the proposals which would cause some performance optimizations over MapReduce

1.Notify TaskTracker to send heartbeat  when a new Job is submitted
  a) Presently when new Job is submitted to JobTracker, the tasks are assigned to TaskTracker
only when the TaskTracker sends heartbeat  to JobTracker
  b) Proposal:
    (1). JobTracker will notify all TaskTrackers to send heartbeat to JobTracker whenever
a new Job is submitted to JobTracker. So that the Tasks of the new Job can be immediately
assigned to all TaskTrackers. 

2. Execute Job Setup and Cleanup on JobTracker JVM
  a) Presently Job Setup and Cleanup is carried out as a separated task on TaskTracker
  b) Launching a new JVM for Setup and Cleanup of the Job introduces some amount of overhead.
It takes generally about 0.7 - 1.5 seconds.
  c) Proposal:
    (1). JobTracker will execute the Job Setup and Cleanup tasks on the JobTracker JVM only.
3. Request TaskTracker to send heartbeat when the Map Task is completed.
  a) Presently TaskTracker reports status of completed Map Tasks as part of heartbeat at a
regular interval.
  b) Proposal:
   (1). Map Task requests TaskTracker to send heartbeat to JobTracker when Map Task is completed.
So that Reduce task can quickly know which map task is finished and copy map outputs to local.
4. Request JobTracker to trigger committing of Reduce output when Reduce Task has finished.

  a) Presently JobTracker will ask the Reduce Task to commit its output to HDFS through heartbeat
response.
  b) Proposal:
   (1). Reduce Task requests TaskTracker to send heartbeat to JobTracker whenever Reduce Task
is completed.

These optimizations might work on small clusters but on big clusters it may be overhead.
