> DBInputFormat generates InputSplits by counting the available rows in a table, and selecting
subsections of the table via the "LIMIT" and "OFFSET" SQL keywords. These are only meaningful
in an ordered context, so the query also includes an "ORDER BY" clause on an index column.
The resulting queries are often inefficient and require full table scans. Actually using multiple
mappers with these queries can lead to O(n^2) behavior in the database, where n is the number
of splits. Attempting to use parallelism with these queries is counter-productive.
> A better mechanism is to organize splits based on data values themselves, which can be
performed in the WHERE clause, allowing for index range scans of tables, and can better exploit
parallelism in the database.
