Short version: MR provides all the info it can to (about all it's tasks locations) and the YARN scheduler deals with providing good locality with even assignment.

Is there a description of how MapReduce under Hadoop 2.0 assigns mapper tasks to preferred nodes?  I think that someone on the list mentioned previously that it attempted to assign "one HDFS block per mapper task", but given that there can be multiple block instances per data split, how does MapReduce try to obtain an even task assignment while optimizing data locality?
