How about just specify machines to run the task on? I haven't seen it

No that is not possible today. However, you might want to look at the
TaskScheduler to see if you can implement a scheduler to provide this kind
of task scheduling.
In the current hadoop, one point regarding computationally intensive task is
that if the machine is not able to keep up with the rest of the machines
(and the task on that machine is running slower than others), speculative
execution, if enabled, can help a lot. Also, implicitly, faster/better
machines get more work than the slower machines.

Dear Hadoop users,
Is it possible without using java manage task assignment to implement some
simple rules? Like do not launch more that 1 instance of crawling task on
a machine, and do not run data intensive tasks on remote machines, and do
not run computationally intensive tasks on single-core machines:etc.
Now it's done by failing tasks that decided to run on a wrong machine, but I
hope to find some solution on jobtracker side..
