Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-611) SequenceFile.Sorter should have a merge method that returns an iterator
Date Sat, 28 Oct 2006 08:15:18 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-611?page=all ]

Devaraj Das updated HADOOP-611:

    Attachment: merge.patch

Apart from the RawKeyValueIterator that the merge APIs return, this patch implements the following
merge optimizations:
1. Optimization described in Hadoop-591 (Reducer sort should even out the pass factors in
merging different pass)
2. Temp files are deleted as soon as possible
3. Added two new APIs nextRawKey and nextRawValue. Current implementation keeps at least
'factor * (sizeof(RawKey) + sizeof(RawValue))' bytes in memory. Optimized this to keep at
'factor * (sizeof(RawKey)) + sizeof(RawValue)'  bytes in memory.
4. Merge temp files are spread out on multiple disks if mapred.local.dir is configured to
have multiple directories.

The RawKeyValueIterator looks like:
public static interface RawKeyValueIterator {
      /** Gets the current raw key
       * @return DataOutputBuffer
       * @throws IOException
      DataOutputBuffer getKey() throws IOException; 
      /** Gets the current raw value
       * @return ValueBytes 
       * @throws IOException
      ValueBytes getValue() throws IOException; 
      /** Sets up the current key and value (for getKey and getValue)
       * @return true if there exists a key/value, false otherwise 
       * @throws IOException
      boolean next() throws IOException;
      /** closes the iterator so that the underlying streams can be closed
       * @throws IOException
      void close() throws IOException;

The public merge methods are:
//Merges the list of segments of type SegmentDescriptor
1. public RawKeyValueIterator merge(List <SegmentDescriptor> segments)  throws IOException;
//Merges the contents of files passed in Path[]
2. public RawKeyValueIterator merge(Path [] inNames, boolean deleteInputs)  throws IOException;
//Clones the attributes (like compression of the input file and 
//creates a corresponding Writer
3. public Writer cloneFileAttributes(FileSystem fileSys, Path inputFile, Path outputFile,
Progressable prog) throws IOException;
//Writes records from RawKeyValueIterator into a file represented 
//by the passed writer
4. public void writeFile(RawKeyValueIterator records, Writer writer) throws IOException;
//Merge the provided files
5. public void merge(Path[] inFiles, Path outFile) throws IOException;

Feedback welcome.

> SequenceFile.Sorter should get a new merge method that returns an iterator over the keys/values.
> The current merge method should become a simple method that gets the iterator and writes
the records out to a file.
