Hi!  a few weeks ago I had the same question... Tried a first iteration at documenting this
by going through the classes starting with key/value pairs in the blog post below.  


Note it's not perfect yet but I think it should provide some insight into things.  The lynch
pin of it all is the DFSOutputStream and the DataStreamer classes.   Anyways... Feel free
to borrow the contents and roll your own , or comment on it & leave some feedback,or let
me know if anything is missing.   

Definetly would be awesome to have a rock solid view of the full write path.

where should I look exactly in the source code about how HDFS distributes the data. Also how
the map reduce engine tries to read the data.
