Subject Re: Performance issues with large map/reduce processes

That is a very small heap.  The reduces, in particular, would benefit
sustantially from having more memory.

Other than that (and having fewer reduces), I am at a bit of a loss.  I know
that others are working on comparably sized problems without much

There might be an interaction with your small heaps and attempts to buffer
