Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-165) Pipelines should automatically use CombineFileInputFormat where input consists of many small files
Date Thu, 21 Mar 2013 15:31:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CRUNCH-165?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13609032#comment-13609032
] 

Joseph Adler commented on CRUNCH-165:
-------------------------------------

Good question. CombineFileInputFormat is a little clunky to use (because it requires you to
do so much low level work.) It may be feasible to create a class that wraps an existing input
format, transforming it to an input format that accepts CombineFileSplits.

> Hive had a feature introduced in HIVE-74 whereby CombineFileInputFormat would be used
if the input data consisted of many small files, making the resulting mapreduce jobs more
efficient by giving individual mappers more data to process. This would be a nice feature
for Crunch to have, too.
