Map - Reduce ( node choice when busy)

Replication is (1+2), node 1 is busy and not available for map-red, the task will be run on the same rack copying data from node 1 or task will be run on second rack where the data is available?

Would you please help me understand? Thanks

If the given node is buzy and no resources are available, then the JobTracker will give the mapRed task to a different node where resources are available, during that time the give node will temporarily copy the block for processing
