Nick Dimiduk created HBASE-9877:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: HFileOutputFormat creates partitions file with random name under /tmp
                 Key: HBASE-9877
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-9877
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: mapreduce
    Affects Versions: 0.96.0, 0.94.12, 0.98.0
            Reporter: Nick Dimiduk
            Priority: Minor


HFileOutputFormat creates a partitions file for managing reducer partition boundaries. This
file is created under /tmp and is just a UUID. As [pointed out|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4285?focusedCommentId=13620294&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-13620294]
by [~lurbina], there's no guarantee this path exists or is user-writable. As [~yuzhihong@gmail.com]
[mentions|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4285?focusedCommentId=13602934&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-13602934],
this file name is useless for users trying to debug a failing job. We should give it a meaningful
name, based on job name and/or timestamp.
