Subject MR to load HBase running slowly in reduce
Date Wed, 24 Nov 2010 19:00:21 GMT
Hi all,

I am running an MR job that is loading an HBase table in the reduce,
and I am seeing hopeless performance - 10 million records of <1Kb in 2
hours so far.

Please bear in mind I am software guy, so go easy ;) but here is what
I know so far:

describes the cluster, and currently 40 reducers are running, all on

- RS and TT all have load averages way down at 1-2 max
- RS and TT CPUs are 398% idle on quad cores, 1598% idle on hyper
threading dual quads
- RS heap is 4G
- there seems no iowait anywhere
- Free -m shows "swap used 0" on all machines if I am reading it correctly

Can anyone please suggest where I can go digging?  Please don't assume
I have looked at the basics - I'm learning as much as I can as I go.
