> We could try and experiment with *rack-aware* scheduling of fetches per-reducer. Given
the disparities between in-rack and off-rack bandwidth it could be a improvement to do something
along these lines:
> {noformat}
> if (no. of known map-output locations > than no. of copier threads) {
>   try to schedule 75% of copies off-rack
>   try schedule 25% of copies in-rack
> }
> {noformat}
> This could lead to better utilization of both in-rack & switch b/w...
> Clearly we want to schedule more cross-switch than in-rack since off-rack copies will
take significantly more time; hence the 75-25 split.
