Add more then one input file per map?

                 Key: HADOOP-1054
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1054
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: mapred
    Affects Versions: 0.11.2
            Reporter: Johan Oskarson
            Priority: Trivial

might be added on for another few weeks.
The problem is that this data is roughly 4-5 kbytes per file. So for every reasonably big
file we might have 4-5 small ones.

As far as I understand it each small file will get assigned a task of it's own. This causes
performance issues since the overhead of such small
files is pretty big.

Would it be possible to have hadoop assign multiple files to a map task up until a configurable
