The data is in HDFS in case of WordCount MR sample. 

In hdfs, you have the metadata in NameNode and actual data as blocks replicated across DataNodes.

In case of reducer, If a reducer is running on a particular node then you have one replica
of the blocks in the same node (If there is no space issues) and rest replicas on other nodes.

Subject: Basic Doubt in Hadoop


I am new to Hadoop. I started reading the standard Wordcount program. I got this basic doubt
in Hadoop.

After the Map - Reduce is done, where is the output generated?  Does the reducer ouput sit
on individual DataNodes ? Please advise.
