I was using defaults.  Maybe my hardware is better than yours.  Tell us
about yours (RAM)?  I suggested io.map.index.skip because you were OOME'ing

You have tasktrackers running on all these nodes?  Try running with less
than the default of two concurrent mappers.  See if that makes a
difference.  Does N=3 work?

Yeah, generally, adding modes ups the amount of writes the cluster can
