    <name>mapred.skip.reduce.max.skip.groups</name>
    <value>0</value>
    <description> The number of acceptable skip groups surrounding the bad 
    group PER bad group in reducer. The number includes the bad group as well.
    To turn the feature of detection/skipping of bad groups off, set the 
    value to 0.
    The framework tries to narrow down the skipped range by retrying  
    until this threshold is met OR all attempts get exhausted for this task. 
    Set the value to Long.MAX_VALUE to indicate that framework need not try to 
    narrow down. Whatever groups(depends on application) get skipped are 
    acceptable.

<property>
  <name>mapred.task.cache.levels</name>

</property>

<property>
  <name>mapred.queue.names</name>
  <value>default</value>
  <description> Comma separated list of queues configured for this jobtracker.
    Jobs are added to queues and schedulers can configure different 
    scheduling properties for the various queues. To configure a property 
    for a queue, the name of the queue must match the name specified in this 
    value. Queue properties that are common to all schedulers are configured 
    here with the naming convention, mapred.queue.$QUEUE-NAME.$PROPERTY-NAME,
    for e.g. mapred.queue.default.submit-job-acl.
    The number of queues configured in this parameter could depend on the
    type of scheduler being used, as specified in 
    mapred.jobtracker.taskScheduler. For example, the JobQueueTaskScheduler
    supports only a single queue, which is the default configured here.
    Before adding more queues, ensure that the scheduler you've configured
    supports multiple queues.

    Before specifying a queue, ensure that the system is configured with 
    the queue, and access is allowed for submitting jobs to the queue.
