When you say "never progresses", do you see the MR framework kill it
automatically after 10 minutes of inactivity or does it never ever
You can lower the timeout period on tasks via mapred.task.timeout set
in msec. You could also set mapred.max.map.failures.percent to a
non-zero value to allow that much percentage of tasks to fail without
also marking the whole job as a failure.
If the task itself does not get killed by the framework due to
inactiveness, try doing a hadoop job -fail-task on its attempt ID
