Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4927) Part files on the output filesystem are created irrespective of whether the corresponding task has anything to write there
Date Thu, 05 Feb 2009 06:53:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4927?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12670642#action_12670642

Devaraj Das commented on HADOOP-4927:
-------------------------------------

It might make sense to add a new API job.setOutputFormat(OutputFormat, boolean lazy). That
will be a shorthand to having the two lines explictly. Also, we need to handle the case of
streaming/pipes (where probably the "lazyOutputCreation" could be taken as a command line
argument).

> When OutputFormat.getRecordWriter is invoked, a part file is created on the output filesystem.
But the created RecordWriter is not used until the OutputCollector.collect call is made by
the task (user's code). This results in empty part files even if the OutputCollector.collect
is never invoked by the corresponding tasks.
