Subject Re: Resource underutilization / final reduce tasks only uses half of cluster ( tasktracker map/reduce slots )
Date Mon, 14 May 2012 19:03:20 GMT
Hi JD,

Number of reduce task will depend upon the key after all the mapper is
done. if the key is same than all the data will go to one node, similarly
utilization of all nodes of cluster will depend upon the number of
different keys for reduce task.
