Subject Re: When and who move the reduce output file part-0000X to the final output directory
Date Fri, 10 May 2013 05:26:27 GMT
The task itself moves it when it receives a commitTask message. See
the OutputCommitter class:
http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/current/api/org/apache/hadoop/mapred/OutputCommitter.html#commitTask(org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskAttemptContext)
