Is there a way to grab a hadoop job's status/progress outside of the job and outside of hadoop?
I.e if I have another application running and this application needs to know that a job has ended or the status percentage while the job is running, how can an external app like this get status from the hadoop job or cluster that the job is done and the progress while it's running?
Is there a hook into the status via HTTP or any other interface? How can external apps get progress of the job running and notification when it's done running? I was thinking there might be a hook in since it reports it via the JobTracker.
