Subject Re: Need help optimizing reducer

Hi Austin,

I am not sure whether you had  this kind of mistake or not but in any case,
I would like to state:
that you might be trying to read whole input values,(corresponding key
values) to reducer function from beginning to end(which is the output value
of mapper) while merging them into one output.

If you can send reducer code, you may get more useful replies.
