Subject Re: Exception during running RowSimilarityJob-Mapper-EntriesToVectorsReducer job

As I'm the author of RowSimilarityJob you should save yourself some time
and believe me that the best thing is to move to 0.6 immediately.

benchmark first then moving forward to 0.6, Sebastian, do you think it's a problem related
to Mahout? (Not Hadoop?) And do you think 0.6 will bring us a huge performance increase? Thanks.

find i should increase "mapred.reduce.tasks" property in Hadoop, so I set it to 8 in my environment
and restart this Job only, so far so good, the job is still running by now, but it's still
a little slow, so here comes my questions: 1) does it be so slow for this job RowSimilarityJob-Mapper-EntriesToVectorsReducer
Job ?2) what does this property "mapred.reduce.tasks" do? And why it can effect RowSimilarityJob-Mapper-EntriesToVectorsReducer
Job ? (Maybe i should ask this 2nd question in hadoop user list... but i think people here
are both pro at hadoop :) )3) what can i do to increase the speed for this job? Any ideas?
Thanks in advance! Ramon
