Re: Multiple reducers
Hi Hoot

You can specify the number of reducers explicitly using -D
mapred.reduce.tasks=n.

hadoop jar wordcount.jar com.wc.WordCount –D mapred.reduce.tasks=n /input
/output

Currenty your word count is triggering just 1 reducer because the defaukt
value of mapred.reduce.tasks woulld be set as 1 in your configuration file

Hope it helps !.
