> hadoop-site.xml :
> mapred.compress.map.output = true
> map output files are compressed but when the in memory merger closes 
> on the reduce the on disk merger runs to reduce input files to <= io.sort.factor if
needed. 
> when this happens it outputs files called intermediate.x files these 
> do not maintain compression setting the writer (o.a.h.mapred.Merger.class line 432)
> passes the codec but I added some logging and its always null map output compression
set true or false.
> This causes task to fail if they can not hold the uncompressed size of the data of the
reduce its holding
> I thank this is just and oversight of the codec not getting set correctly for the on
disk merges.
> {code}
> 2009-03-20 01:30:30,005 INFO org.apache.hadoop.mapred.Merger: Merging 30 intermediate
segments out of a total of 3000
> 2009-03-20 01:30:30,005 INFO org.apache.hadoop.mapred.Merger: intermediate.1 used codec:
null
> {code}
> I added

> 	   if (codec != null){
> 	     LOG.info("intermediate." + passNo + " used codec: " + codec.toString());
> 	   } else {
> 	     LOG.info("intermediate." + passNo + " used codec: Null");
> 	   }
> 	   // end added by me
> {code}
> Just before the creation of the writer o.a.h.mapred.Merger.class line 432
> and it outputs the second line above.
> I have confirmed this with the logging and I have looked at the files on the disk of
the tasktracker. I can read the data in 
> the intermediate files clearly telling me that there not compressed but I can not read
the map.out files direct from the map output
> telling me the compression is working on the map end but not on the on disk merge that
produces the intermediate.
> I can see no benefit for these not maintaining the compression setting and as it looks
they where intended to maintain it.
