This looks a really impressive performance gain! awesome.

>             Project: Hadoop Core
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: mapred

>             Fix For: 0.21.0
> HADOOP-3446 fixed the reduce to not flush the in-memory shuffled map-outputs before feeding
to the reduce. However for latency-sensitive applications with lots of memory like the terasort
this hurts performance since the fan-in for the final in-memory merge is too large (all 8000
map-outputs very in-memory) resulting in less than optimal performance.
> When I put in an intermediate memory-to-memory merge for the terasort's reduce (there-by
avoiding disk i/o) to cut the fan-in from 8000 to <100 the 'reduce' phase (including the
local datanode-write) sped-up 250% (from 10s to 4s).
