RE: Load Resource File for UDF on Cluster
How about using the distributed cache?

This may be sacrilege, but for files like GeoIP.dat that you will
consistently want, another strategy is to make them part of your
datanode deployment/configuration.  Have puppet or whatever you use put
the GeoIP stuff in a common location on each datanode
(/usr/local/geoip/GeoIP.dat or something) and then load it locally in
your UDF.  The other benefit of this with GeoIP specifically is that it
allows you to update the data file without deploying a new jar, plus the
size of the jar that you're sending all over the cluster gets reduced
Just a thought,
