Subject Delays in worker node jobs
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2012 13:40:59 GMT
Running 1.0.2, in this case on Linux.

I was watching the processes / loads on one TaskTracker instance and
noticed that it completed it's first 8 map tasks and reported 8 free
slots (the max for this system). It then waited doing nothing for more
than 30 seconds before the next "batch" of work came in and started running.

Likewise it also has relatively long periods with all 8 cores running at
or near idle. There are no jobs failing or obvious errors in the
TaskTracker log.

What could be causing this?

Should I increase the number of map jobs to greater than number of cores
to try and keep it busier?
