> I have been trying to run a m-r job on my cluster. I had modified my configs (primarily reduced the heap sizes for the task tracker and the data nodes) and restarted my hadoop cluster and the job won't start: The job tracker keeps spewing out logs of the form:

This looks like you are using the Capacity scheduler with high memory
job configuration. Did you set any specific memory parameters ? Also,
are there no jobs in the cluster other than this one ? Can you give
the version of Hadoop being used, and configuration of memory related
> And the cluster shows no activity of the job progressing: (% complete is 0 in the map jobs).. I see no errors/activity in tasktrackers..
