Adding on to Chen's response.

This is a setting meant at Task Tracker level(environment setting based on parameters like your CPU cores, memory etc) and you need to override the same at each task tracker's mapred-site.xml and restart the TT daemon for changes to be in effect.

you set the " mapred.tasktracker.map.tasks.maximum " in your job means
nothing. Because Hadoop mapreduce platform only checks this parameter when
it starts. This is a system configuration.

  You need to set it in your conf/mapred-site.xml file and restart your
hadoop mapreduce.
