Subject Combiner is optional though it is specified?
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2008 11:04:26 GMT

Hi all,
   I have a query regarding the functionality of combiner.  
Is it possible to ignore combiner code for some of the outputs of mapper and
directly being sent to reducer though combiner is specified in job
Because, I figured out that, when I am running on large amounts of data,
some of the mapper output is directly reached reducer. I am wondering how
can this be possible when I have specified combiner in the job
configuration. Can any one please  let me know if this thing happens?
