> When implementing a custom derivative of FileInputFormat we ran into the effect that
a large Gzipped input file would be processed several times. 
> A near 1GiB file would be processed around 36 times in its entirety. Thus producing garbage
results and taking up a lot more CPU time than needed.
> It took a while to figure out and what we found is that the default implementation of
the isSplittable method in [org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.lib.input.FileInputFormat | http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/hadoop/mapreduce/trunk/src/java/org/apache/hadoop/mapreduce/lib/input/FileInputFormat.java?view=markup
] is simply "return true;". 
> This is a very unsafe default and is in contradiction with the JavaDoc of the method
which states: "Is the given filename splitable? Usually, true, but if the file is stream compressed,
it will not be. " . The actual implementation effectively does "Is the given filename splitable?
Always true, even if the file is stream compressed using an unsplittable compression codec.
> For our situation (where we always have Gzipped input) we took the easy way out and simply
implemented an isSplittable in our class that does "return false; "
> Now there are essentially 3 ways I can think of for fixing this (in order of what I would
find preferable):
> # Implement something that looks at the used compression of the file (i.e. do migrate
the implementation from TextInputFormat to FileInputFormat). This would make the method do
what the JavaDoc describes.
> # "Force" developers to think about it and make this method abstract.
> # Use a "safe" default (i.e. return false)
