Subject Task does not enter reduce function after secondary sort
Date Sun, 04 Nov 2012 20:18:14 GMT
I am using a Secondary Sort for my Hadoop program. My map function emits
(Text,NullWritable) where Text contains the composite key and appropriate
comparison functions are made and a custom Partitioner . These seem to be
working fine.

I have been struggling with the problem that these values are not being
received by the reduce function and instead automatically get written to
the hdfs in x number of files where x is the number of reducers. I have
made sure the reduce function is set to my Reduce function and not identity

Can someone please explain this behavior and what could be possibly wrong ?

Thanks & Regards,
