Subject Parts of a file as input
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2012 06:02:36 GMT
Hi,

I'm very new to Hadoop and am working through how we may be able to apply
it to our data set.

One of the things that I am struggling with is understanding if it is
possible to pass tell Hadoop that only parts of the input file will be
needed for a specific job. The reason I believe I may need this is that we
have two big dimensions in our data set. Queries may want only one of these
dimensions and while some un-needed reading is unavoidable there are cases
that reading the entire data set presents a very significant overhead.

Or have I just misunderstood something ;-(

thanks
