Subject Re: A small portion of map tasks slows down the job

Would reducing the output from the map tasks solve the problem ? i.e. are
reducers slowing down because a lot of data is being shuffled ?

If that's the case, you could see if the map output size will reduce by
using the framework's combiner or an in-mapper combining technique.
