Subject Re: Out of heap space errors on TTs

John,
       Did you try out map join with hive? It uses the Distributed Cache and
hash maps to achieve the goal.
set hive.auto.convert.join = true;
I have* *tried the same over joins involving huge tables and a few smaller
tables.My smaller tables where less than 25MB(configuration tables) and It
worked for me. In your case since the smaller table is 137MB I'm not sure
whether you should go in for this or not. Let us leave that part for the
experts to comment on.
 Also map joins  in default would work only if the size of smaller table is
less than 25Mb. You can try increasing the value that would suit your
requirements by.
*set hive.smalltable.filesize = 150000000*.
I'm really not sure whether it is advisable in your scenario. I'm leaving it
to the experts to comment on the same.

All,
          A quick query from my end. What could be the maximum size of a
file that could be distributed on the cache in map reduce jobs? I 'm looking
out for an optimal value along with the maximum permissible one(not
impacting the execution of basic map reduce ). Does that depend on your
cluster size or one your individual node hardware configuration?
