Subject RE: MRBench Maps strange behaviour
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2012 17:11:56 GMT
mrbench "actual lunched map task" depends on the number of inputLines.

So in your first case, you did specify more input that maps, hence all maps are lunched.

The default inputLines is 1,  which is (cough cough)  quite oblivious to the number of maps
you specify.
(That was your second case)

Subject: Re: MRBench Maps strange behaviour

Then the question arises how MRBench is using the parameters :
According to the mail he send... he is running MRBench with the following parameter:

hadoop jar /usr/lib/hadoop-0.20/hadoop-test.jar mrbench -maps 10 -reduces 10

I guess he is assuming the MRbench to launch 10 mappers and 10 reducers. But he is getting
some different results which are visible in the counters and we can use all our map and input-split
logics to justify the counter outputs.

The question arises here -- how can we use MRBench -- what it provides you ? How can we control
it to run with different parameters to do some benchmarking ? Can someone explain how to use
MRBench and what it exactly does.

Regards,
Praveenesh

Assume you are asking about what is the exact number of maps launched.
If yes, then the output of the MRBench run is printing the counter
"Launched map tasks". That is the exact value of maps launched.
