Subject Re: Stats to look out for while running mapreduce jobs with HBase
Date Fri, 12 Nov 2010 20:51:01 GMT
It is interesting point
 I am entering to hbase using m/r

1) map phase consumes 100% cpu
2) reducer phase (hbase insertions) consumes ~ 15%

As I understand there are a lot of improvement  could done here

Can some recommend me what is the monitoring  tool that is good to monitor
map/reduce jobs.

 Thanks
Oleg.
