How do I set the memory for a map task directly? 

You seem to ignore -Xmx settings in mapred-site.xml/

Changing mapreduce.tasktracker.reserved.physicalmemory.mb to -1 doesn't help.  And it appears that you have built in assumptions that reduce tasks should get more memory than map tasks.  I have read your map reduce tuning page and the answer isn't apparent to me.

Thanks for the help
