Subject Question about writing HDFS files
Date Thu, 16 May 2013 22:08:45 GMT
I seem to recall reading that when a MapReduce task writes a file, the blocks of the file are
always written to local disk, and replicated to other nodes.  If this is true, is this also
true for non-MR applications writing to HDFS from Hadoop worker nodes?  What about clients
outside of the cluster doing a file load?
Thanks
John
