      Introduced a configuration parameter, mapred.heartbeats.in.second, as an expert option, that defines how many heartbeats a jobtracker can process in a second. Administrators can set this to an appropriate value based on cluster size and expected processing time on the jobtracker to achieve a balance between jobtracker scalability and latency of jobs.

      Description

      Currently, the hearbeat cycle is set to (# nodes / 100) in seconds. This can be too long for clusters that need to run low latency jobs. We should make the number of heartbeats that should arrive a second configurable.
