Subject Setting #Reducers at runtime
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2010 15:39:09 GMT
Hi there,

I am using Hadoop 0.20.1 and I am trying to submit jobs to the cluster as

Here's what I'm trying to do:

> hadoop jar $hadoopPath/hadoop-*-examples.jar join -Dmapred.reduce.tasks=10
-inFormat org.apache.hadoop.mapred.KeyValueTextInputFormat  -outKey
org.apache.hadoop.io.Text file1.dat file2.dat output.dat

However, my parameter setting of attempting to state 10 reducers for the job
is not being honoured by Hadoop, instead choosing some other number. Where
am I going wrong here? I do not want to have to change this value in
hadoop/conf.*.xml files, as I am attempting to show the expressive power of
Hadoop. Note: The power to specify the number or reducers in possible in
both Pig and Hive.
