RE: Slow tutorial?
Hi Mark,

 pig.jar that comes with it is old and doesn't have pig.properties.

 Try making a new build (June 26th or later) and make sure you have
these in pig.properties:

#Do not spill temp files smaller than this size (bytes)
#EXPERIMENT: Activate garbage collection when spilling a file bigger
than this size (bytes)
#This should help reduce the number of files being spilled.

or similar numbers...

Subject: Slow tutorial?

Hi All,

I downloaded the pig tutorial to give it a whirl, set it up on a hadoop
cluster I've used for a few other tasks (7 nodes, ec2) and went through
the instructions to launch tutorial script1 with the excite bz file on
hdfs. Two things jumped out:

1) Only one mapper launched
2) It's really slow. It's been almost 5 hours and still under 10% of the
mapper is completed

Have I misconfigured something? What's a good benchmark run time for the
tutorial scripts to complete?
