Subject RE: What's the best way to get to a single key?
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2008 00:09:07 GMT
So I read some more through the Javadocs.  I had 11 reducers on my original job leaving me
11 MapFile directories.  I am passing in their parent directory here as "outDir".

MapFile.Reader[] readers = MapFileOutputFormat.getReaders(fileSys, outDir, defaults);
Partitioner part = (Partitioner)ReflectionUtils.newInstance(conf.getPartitionerClass(), conf);
Text entryValue = (Text)MapFileOutputFormat.getEntry(readers, part, new Text("mykey"), null);
System.out.println("My Entry's Value: ");

But I am getting an exception:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ArithmeticException: / by zero
        at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.lib.HashPartitioner.getPartition(HashPartitioner.java:35)
        at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.MapFileOutputFormat.getEntry(MapFileOutputFormat.java:85)
        at mypackage.MyClass.main(ProfileReader.java:110)

        at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:585)
        at org.apache.hadoop.util.RunJar.main(RunJar.java:155)

I am assuming I am doing something wrong, but I'm not sure what it is yet.  Any ideas?

I was thinking because it would be easier to search a single-index.
Unless I don't have to worry and hadoop searches all my indexes at the
same time.  Is this the case?

To append text files you can use 'bin/hadoop fs -getmerge'.

To merge sorted SequenceFiles (like MapFile/index files) you can use:

enceFile.Sorter.html#merge(org.apache.hadoop.fs.Path[], org.apache.had
oop.fs.Path, boolean)

But this doesn't generate a MapFile.

Why is a single file preferable?
