    Description

      Currently, HOD generates the name of the mapredsystem directory using the name /mapredsystem/hostname-of-jobtracker.

      In HADOOP-2899, we ran into a scenario where this naming convention could lead to problems in case dfs permissions are enabled. While the bug should ideally be addressed in Hadoop M/R, it will be better that HOD does not generate names that can potentially clash across runs. One way to solve the problem is to do what HOD already does for local log and temp directories - name it using username.torque-job-id, which is going to be pretty unique mostly.
