Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIG-2779) Refactoring the code for setting number of reducers
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2012 22:21:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-2779?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13422680#comment-13422680
] 

Bill Graham commented on PIG-2779:
----------------------------------

Great! We should probably set {{estimatedParallelism}} too, in case that's what was used.
If default parallel is used, it seems like that should show up already as {{default_parallel}}
actually, so we can omit that one. How about this:

{noformat}
pig.info.reducers.requested.parallel
pig.info.reducers.estimated.parallel
pig.info.reducers.runtime.parallel
{noformat}

I'm prefixing with 'info' to denote that these fields are not accepted as input. Instead they
are produced as output for debugging and analysis. I'll send an email to pig-dev about the
suggested syntax.

> As PIG-2652 observed, currently the code for setting number of reducers is a little messy.
MapReduceOper.requestedParallelism seems being misused in some plases, and now we support
runtime estimation of #reducer which further complicates the problem.
> For example, if we specify parallel 1 for the order-by, the estimated #reducer will be
used. If we specify parallel 2 while it estimates 4, order-by will fail due to "Illegal partition
for Null". If we specify parallel 4 while it estimates 2, then some reducers will have nothing
to do.
