From the jobtracker web UI you can get the total number of map and reduce slots. Also from the wen UI itself you can get the num of running map/reduce tasks. Second value subtracted from first would give you the available slots.
Fair scheduler is a property of map reduce and not of hive. It is primarily used to control the number of slots used by each user/pool in a cluster. You can read more @

Subject: Re: How to run multiple Hive queries in parallel
Hi Bejoy and Bertrand
Thanks for quick reply.
I think tasks slots are not available in my cluster because I have only 4
Actually I am beginner to HIVE. So, if you can let me know how I can check
if time slots are available or not.
I have different users credentials to log in into my name node machine, but
I don't have much idea about fair scheduler.
In case time slots are not available and are exhausted , then if you can
please point me to some publicly available fair scheduler which I can
integrate with HIVE to solve my problem.
