There are 2 daemons that are launched when the MapReduce framework
starts - JobTracker and TaskTracker. Every map or reduce task runs in
a separate process called Child (you could grep for Child to identify
these). Possibly, this is what you meant by 'TaskInProgress'.
TaskInProgress is an internal class of the framework and as such does
not relate to any process launched. The number of child processes
launched will be equal to the number of Map and reduce tasks launched
on a slave node.
