> Currently - whenever we submit a map-reduce job via a child jvm process, hive sets HADOOP_HEAPSIZE
to hive.mapred.local.mem (thereby limiting the max heap memory of the child jvm). the assumption
being that we are submitting a job for local mode execution and different memory limits apply
for that.
> however - one can submit jobs via a child jvm for non local mode execution as well. This
is useful, for example, if hive wants to submit jobs via different hadoop clients (for sending
jobs to different hadoop clusters). in such case, we can use the 'hive.exec.submitviachild'
and 'hadoop.bin.path' to dispatch job via an alternate hadoop client install point. however
in such case, we don't need to set HADOOP_HEAPSIZE. all we are using the child jvm is to run
the small bit of hive code that submits the job (and not for local mode execution).
> in this case - we shouldn't be setting the child jvm's memory limit and should leave
it to what the parent's value is.
