Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1965) Handle map output buffers better

Sameer Paranjpye commented on HADOOP-1965:
------------------------------------------

We need to benchmark anything we implement for this issue. The interesting use case is tasks
that spill since these make no progress while the sort/spill is happening. Running more total
maps / more concurrent maps per node are also options. But these seem like orthogonal strategies,
improving latency will help regardless, no?

> Today, the map task stops calling the map method while sort/spill is using the (single
instance of) map output buffer. One improvement that can be done to improve performance of
the map task is to have another buffer for writing the map outputs to, while sort/spill is
using the first buffer.
