Are you using the mesos-hadoop project found here, If so, you are correct that idle
tasktrackers should be torn down at the end. I wonder what the cluster
state when the JobInProgressListener is called with upon your job's
completion. Specifically, I would look into tracing this section [1] of code
* *where the task trackers job queue is checked for emptiness the tracker
is checked for being active. If the tracker was never activated I think it
would also be running but not killed.
