Subject Re: Why/When partitioner is used.
Date Fri, 07 Jun 2013 11:17:16 GMT
I always get confused why we should partition and what is the use of it.
Why would one want to send all the keys starting with A to Reducer1 and B to R2 and so on...
Is it just to parallelize the reduce process.
Please help.
