Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3307) Archives in Hadoop.
Date Sun, 27 Apr 2008 20:30:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3307?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12592678#action_12592678

Mahadev konar commented on HADOOP-3307:

>am also curious about the 'parallel creation' aspect (since that seems to be the main
argument for using a new > achive format). how do we populate a single hdfs file (backing
the archive) in parallel? 

The archive isnt a single file backed by an index but multiple files 

quoting from the design posted earlier in the comments:

The format of an archive as a filesystem path is:


The indexes store the filenames and the offset with the part files.

Each map would create part-$i files and a single reduce or multiple reduces could create the
index files in the archive directory. Does that help in understanding the design?
