Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAPREDUCE-5583) Ability to limit running map and reduce tasks

Vinod Kumar Vavilapalli commented on MAPREDUCE-5583:
----------------------------------------------------

Yes, +1 for this. This is how HADOOP-5170 is supposed to have been addressed, but couldn't
in MRv1.

> It would be nice if users could specify a limit to the number of map or reduce tasks
that are running simultaneously.  Occasionally users are performing operations in tasks that
can lead to DDoS scenarios if too many tasks run simultaneously (e.g.: accessing a database,
web service, etc.).  Having the ability to throttle the number of tasks simultaneously running
would provide users a way to mitigate issues with too many tasks on a large cluster attempting
to access a serivce at any one time.
> This is similar to the functionality requested by MAPREDUCE-224 and implemented by HADOOP-3412
but was dropped in mrv2.
