As you may be aware this means the reduces are unable to fetch intermediate
data from TaskTrackers that ran map tasks - you can try:
* increasing tasktracker.http.threads so there are more threads to handle
fetch requests from reduces.
* decreasing mapreduce.reduce.parallel.copies : so fewer copy / fetches are
performed in parallel
It could also be due to a temporary DNS issue.
See slide 26 of this presentation for potential causes for this message:
Not sure why you did not receive the problem before but was it the same data
or different data? Did you have other jobs running on your cluster?
Hope that helps
