That's a good point!

Given that the default value of mapred.task.timeout is 600000 (10m) I consider this very unlikely, the ideal value of the new config key has order of magniture of a few hundred ms. However, in some extreme cases (or when clearly misusing this feature) it is possible that this case needs to be handled.

Do you have any suggestion? For example, limiting sqoop.mysql.export.sleep.ms to a maximum of the value in mapred.task.timeout?

With low enough byte count limit this can be a simple yet powerful throttling mechanism.
