Subject Spill and Map Output
Date Wed, 22 Dec 2010 20:47:23 GMT
Hi,

1 - I would like to understand how a partition works in the Map
Reduce. I know that the Map Reduce contains the IndexRecord class that
indicates the length of something. Is it the length of a partition or
of a spill?

2 - In large map output, a partition can be a set of spills, or a
spill is simple the same thing as a partition?

Thanks,
-- 
Pedro
