Subject InputSplit boundaries
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2008 11:43:40 GMT
Hi,

I have a question regarding InputSplit boundaries. Does an InputSplit
necessarily fall within a single file system block boundaries ? Or can it
span across blocks ? In particular, what about a FileSplit ?
If it spans among blocks, could the blocks reside in different machines ? If
so, how would it effect locality of computations ?

Thanks, Naama
