Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-619) Unify Map-Reduce and Streaming to take the same globbed input specification
Date Tue, 05 Dec 2006 14:27:02 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-619?page=comments#action_12455648 ] 
            
Sanjay Dahiya commented on HADOOP-619:
--------------------------------------

Runping: 
The patterns you mentioned work, basically it breaks the input path in parts and matches files/directories
at each step going forward(without recursing) so it should be ok with these types of patterns.


>The list of matched files 
>   should be part of the job's status so that the user can examine them through web UI.

The list of input paths will be a part of jobclient so it will be available through the JobTracker
UI anyways. Does this sound ok ?

> Right now streaming input is specified very differently from other map-reduce input.
 It would be good if these two apps could take much more similar input specs.
> In particular -input in streaming expects a file or glob pattern while MR takes a directory.
 It would be cool if both could take a glob patern of files and if both took a directory by
default (with some patern excluded to allow logs, metadata and other framework output to be
safely stored).
> We want to be sure that MR input is backward compatible over this change.  I propose
that a single file should be accepted as an input or a single directory.  Globs should only
match directories if the paterns is '/' terminated, to avoid massive inputs specified by mistake.
> Thoughts?
