This shouldn't be too surprising given that the MapReduce job needs to talk to HDFS to determine
input and to write output.

The ports for the services are already separated out.  

In general, client -> server connections map out as:


Given a small 3 node grid, a dump of what processes open what ports, and what connections
are made between all the machines, it should be trivial to make a more complex connection
map.  [You can probably even do it as a map reduce job. :) ]
