Subject Re: MR Data Locality with AccumuloInputFormat?
Date Fri, 16 May 2014 20:37:14 GMT
Hi Russ,

I believe that the AccumuloInputFormat will use the splits on the table 
you're reading to generate the MR InputSplits. The InputFormat should be 
trying to run the Mappers on the same machine as the tserver serving the 
data is located.

If you're only getting a few mappers, adding more splits to your table 
should help. As your job runs, you can verify locality using the 
counters that your Job creates using the JobTracker/ResourceManger web UI.
