Subject [jira] [Resolved] (HADOOP-960) Incorrect number of map tasks when there are multiple input files
Date Sat, 16 Jul 2011 18:26:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-960?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Harsh J resolved HADOOP-960.
----------------------------

    Resolution: Invalid

The ability to specify "mapred.map.tasks" is going away with the new API of MR. The only _right_
way to control splits is to have your own InputFormat that does it the way you need it to.
The default way has worked for many (being local-data sensitive, as long as such information
is available, but also split size tunable), and can also be asked to process whole files with
a very simple subclass/configuration.

Resolving as invalid (now, and onwards) since InputFormat#getSplits(…) is not going anywhere,
and can do what you want it to.

Regd. record num splits, MR now has NLineInputFormat as well, which indeed opens and reads
through the file.

> This problem happens with hadoop-streaming and possibly elsewhere.  If there are 5 input
files, it will create 130 map tasks, even if mapred.map.tasks=128.  The number of map tasks
is incorrectly set to a multiple of the number of files.  (I wrote a much more complete bug
report, but Jira lost it when it had an error, so I'm not in the mood to write it all again)
