Subject Re: To process a BIG input graph in giraph.
Date Wed, 05 Mar 2014 16:31:20 GMT
Hi, Experts,
  Could anybody remind me how to load mutiple input files in a giraph
command line? The following do not work, they only load the first input
-vip /user/hadoop/input/ttt.txt   /user/hadoop/input/ttt2.txt
-vip /user/hadoop/input/ttt.txt  -vip /user/hadoop/input/ttt2.txt

  Best Regards,
