Amir Youssefi updated PIG-171:
------------------------------

    Assignee:     (was: Amir Youssefi)

> Top K

>
>                 Key: PIG-171
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-171
>             Project: Pig
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Amir Youssefi
>
> Frequently, users are interested on Top results (especially Top K rows) . This can be
implemented efficiently in Pig /Map Reduce settings to deliver rapid results and low Network
Bandwidth/Memory usage.
>  
>  Key point is to prune all data on the map side and keep only small set of rows with
Top criteria . We can do it in Algebraic function (combiner) with multiple value output. Only
a small data-set gets out of mapper node.
> The same idea is applicable to solve variants of this problem:
>   - An Algebraic Function for 'Top K Rows'
>   - An Algebraic Function for 'Top K' values ('Top Rank K' and 'Top Dense Rank K')
>   - TOP K ORDER BY.
> Another words implementation is similar to combiners for aggregate functions but instead
of one value we get multiple ones. 
> I will add a sample implementation for Top K Rows and possibly TOP K ORDER BY to clarify
details.
