Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-841) PERFORMANCE: The sample MR job in order by implementation can use Hadoop sorting instead of doing a POSort

Pradeep Kamath commented on PIG-841:
------------------------------------

This mechanism can be used for any join which requires sampling like the one described in
http://wiki.apache.org/pig/PigSkewedJoinSpec

> Currently the sample map reduce job in order by implementation does the following:
>  - sample 100 records from each map
>  - group all on the above output
>  - sort the output bag from the above grouping on keys of the order by
>  - give the sorted bag to FindQuantiles udf
> The steps 2 and 3 above can be replaced by
> - group the sample output by the order by key and set parallelism of the group to 1 so
that output of the group goes to one reducer. Since Hadoop ensures the output of the group
is sorted by key we get sorting for free without using POSort
