Subject Re: Avoiding serialization/de-serialization in pig

Agree, I have compared the performance between Hive and Pig using some
simple script.  The performance of Hive is much better than Pig. The mapper
task time of pig and hive is almost the same, The time difference is almost
is caused by the reduce task and much time is spent on transfer time from
mapper to reducer. This is because the Pig will transfer much more data than
Hive. Hive use another binary format
which can reduce the intermediate data between mapper and reducer. And Avro
is something very similar to this, it's more compact. I believe it will
improve Pig's performance.
