I was reading the elephant book trying to understand which process actually serves up the HTTP transfer on the mapper side. Is it the each map task? Or is there some persistent task on each worker that serves up mapper output for all map tasks?

The map output doesn't get written to HDFS. The map task writes its output to its local disk, the reduce tasks will pull the data through HTTP for further processing.

When MapReduce enters "shuffle" to partition the tuples, I am assuming that it writes intermediate data to HDFS. What replication factor is used for those temporary files?
