Subject Logic of isSplittable() of class FileInputFormat
Date Wed, 26 Feb 2014 05:24:28 GMT

If a single file is split of size 129 MB is split in two halves/blocks of
HDFS as the max block size id 128 MB. And each of the blocks is read
depending on the InputFormat it supports. Thus, what is the significance of
isSplittable() method then?

If it is set to false, entire block will be considered as single input
split? How will TextInputFormat react to it?

Thanks & Regards,
