Subject RE: How to combine input files for a MapReduce job

Hi,

I got it. The log info is printed in userlogs folder in slave nodes, in the file syslog.

Thanks,
Nikhil

Hi Harsh,

I applied the changes of the patch in hadoop source code but can you please tell exactly where
is this log being printed? I checked in log files of JobTracker and TaskTracker but it is
not there. It is not getting printed in _logs folder creates inside output directory for MR
job.

Regards,
Nikhil

Yes I believe the branch-1 patch attached there should apply cleanly to 1.0.4.

Hadoop you use would help.
