      Description

      In a Cluster with 16GB capacity, job has started with 100maps and 10 reducers.

      When the reducers has started its execution, one NM has went down and resulted a failure for 2 maps. But at this time, remaining 8Gb was used by 6 reducers and AM. So there was no place to launch the failed maps. [NM never came up again, and cluster size became 8GB]

      If we kill one of reducers, then also the map cannot be launched as the priority of Failed map is lesser than that of reducer. So the remaining reducer only will get allocated from RM side.

      This is causing a hang for in reducer side.
