      Description

      Memory based monitoring and scheduling allow users to set memory limits for the tasks of their jobs. This parameter is the total memory taken by the task, and any children it may launch (for e.g. in the case of streaming). A related parameter is mapred.child.ulimit which is a hard limit on the memory used by a single process of the entire task tree. For user convenience, it would be sensible for the system to set the ulimit to atleast the memory required by the task, if the user has specified the latter.
