I was wondering if you care to share your map-reduce code

The difference is noticeable but small. I did a test just reading data
in from Cassandra on our cluster & dumping it to a csv file. Pure map
reduce was going at ~17k records/sec versus ~15k from Pig. There is
overhead to using Pig, but it'll reduce your development time & make
for more readable code if it suits your needs.
