I assume you are talking about MapReduce. And 1.x release or 2.x?
In either of the releases, this cannot be done directly.
In 1.x, the framework doesn't expose a feature like this as it is a shared service, and if enough jobs flock to a node, it will lead to utilization and failure handling issues.
In Hadoop 2 YARN, the platform does expose this functionality. But MapReduce framework doesn't yet expose this functionality to the end users.
What exactly is your use case? Why are some nodes of higher priority than others?

> Thanks for replying Rev, but the link is talking about reducers which seems to be like a similar case but what if I assigned priorities to the data partitions (eg. partition B=1, partition C=2, partition A=3,...) such that first map task is assigned partition B to run first. Then second map is given partition C, .. etc. This is instead of assigning based on partition size. Is that possible?
