      Ran across a case where a reducer ran on a node where the disks were full, leading to an exception like this during the shuffle fetch:

      Even though the error was local to the reducer, it reported the error as a fetch failure to the AM than failing the reducer itself. It then proceeded to run into the same error for many other maps, causing them to relaunch from reported fetch failures. In this case it would have been better to fail the reducer and try another node rather than blame the mapper for what is an error on the reducer's side.
