Subject Number of map jobs per region
Date Sun, 28 Aug 2011 09:05:56 GMT

We have 31 regions for a table in our HBase system and hence while scanning
the table via TableMapper, it creates 31 maps. Following is the line from
documentation where I got the reason for the same.

"Reading from HBase, the TableInputFormat asks HBase for the list of regions
and makes a map-per-region or mapred.map.tasks maps, whichever is smaller "

Each region file size is almost 7 GB(lzo compressed  data) and map jobs are
taking huge time to processed the data. Is there any way to increase
parallelism(allocate more maps per region)?
