Killing bad behaving mapreduce job

I was working on building this MapReduce program, and after submitting it i realized that i made a mistake and it was taking really long time to complete the job. So i decided to kill it. These are the steps that i followed First i did execute the mapred job -list command to get list of jobs that were in progress. The output of the list command gives you the job id Then you can use mapred job -kill job_1405432500430_0001 command to kill the job that your interested in
You can confirm the mapreduce job was actually killed by using the web console like this
