> There are cases when the input to a Hive job are thousands of small files. In this case,
there is a mapper for each file. Most of the overhead for spawning all these mappers can be
avoided if these small files are combined into fewer larger files.
> The problem can also be addressed by having a mapper span multiple blocks as in:
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-74
> Bit, it also makes sense in HIVE to merge files whenever possible.
