I'm curious about the relationship between the namenode/job/task trackers and the machine's web server? Do the former require the latter? Does successful connection to the trackers imply that the machine has a web server up and running? I realize the ports are totally different (web is generally port 80), but the trackers are headed with the "http" URI, so I'm a little unsure if that means anything w.r.t. my question. Can you run and access the trackers on a machine that doesn't have a webserver installed or running?
I know, it's a weird question. Thanks for any quick response.
