Subject Non local mapper .. Is it worth it?
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2012 05:14:00 GMT
If there is a job with files f1 and f2, and a Mapper (m1) is running against a file (f2) which
is far from the local machine(m1), will the overhead of copying f2 over to m1 be worth it?.

That is .... - is the amount of resources required to read data off a remote machine (m2)
 worth it? Or would it be better if that remote (m2) now simply processed both files (f1,
f2) in turn?
