-----------------------------------------

Hello, is this still relevant? I would like to help with it, can someone point me to a starting
point?

> It would be very useful to have a reliable test case to help launch speculative tasks
(maps and/or reduces) to help debug problems or fine-tune strategies for speculative execution.
> I propose we implement some along the lines of the SmallJobsBenchmark and put it in the
hadoop-test.jar. I imagine it could be used like:
> {noformat}
> $ bin/hadoop jar hadoop-${version}-test.jar speculativejob -nMaps 1000 -nReduces 50 -specMaps
10 -specReduces 5
> {noformat}
> The application should be minutely aware of the _current_ strategies for launching speculative
tasks, and throttle requisite no. of maps/reduces to ensure that the speculative tasks are
launched in a reliable and repeatable manner.
> Thoughts?
