-Re: What is the difference between Rack-local map tasks and Data-local map tasks?
Definitely, If data local map tasks are more the performance will be improved much.
Ideally if data is uniformly distributed across DNs and if you have enough number of map task slots on colocated TTs then most of your map tasks should be Data Local. You may have just a few non data local map tasks when the number of input splits/map tasks are large which is quite common.

Very good explanation,
If there is a way to reduce Rack-local map tasks
but can increase the Data-local map tasks ,
Whether to increase performance？
