Re: how to set diffent VM parameters for mappers and reducers?
For 0.20.x, you can specify java opts for your tasks with:

mapred.child.java.opts for all tasks
mapred.map.child.java.opts (mapreduce.map.java.opts for 0.21+) for maps
mapred.reduce.child.java.opts (mapreduce.reduce.java.opts for 0.21+)
for reduces.
