--------------------------------------------

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-1206
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1206
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug

--snip--
How Many Reduces?

The right number of reduces seems to be 0.95 or 1.75 multiplied by (<no. of nodes> *
mapred.tasktracker.reduce.tasks.maximum).
--snip--

Sure, if you only ever run one job on your grid.  There should really be a better answer here,
especially explaining what the impact is of a high/low number when chaining multiple map/reduce
jobs.
