Ashutosh Chauhan commented on PIG-948:

In this string, we are determining job-tracker address, port number and job-ids 
through apis, so thats fine. 
I agree that hardcoding other parts of url ( jobdetails.jsp?jobid= ) is not the 
best way to do it, as it will break the link if that web-url changes in later 
hadoop releases. But since there is no way to programatically  get that url, I 
went ahead with this. If there is a way to get that url programatically, let me 
know. If not, I think its useful enough to have it like this and update it if 
it gets changed in later hadoop releases.

> Currently its hard to find a way to relate pig script with specific MR job. 
> In a loaded cluster with multiple simultaneous job submissions, its not easy 
> to figure out which specific MR jobs were launched for a given pig script. If 
> Pig can provide this info, it will be useful to debug and monitor the jobs 
> resulting from a pig script.
> At the very least, Pig should be able to provide user the following 
> information
> 1) Job id of the launched job.
> 2) Complete web url of jobtracker running this job.
