Subject Re: find out which user that is running the mapred job

thanks! its a little confusing. you suggest mapred.job.user, but some
googling also resulted in user.name and hadoop.job.ugi. are user.name and
hadoop.job.ugi related to the user that runs the daemons (as opposed to the
user that initiated the job)?

also, in secure mode don't the jvms run the tasks using the linux
credentials of the user that initiated the job? and if so, doesn't that
mean that i can get the username inside the tasks from System.getProperty("
