After reading this, you should have a good understanding of the architecture and know that indeed there is no "shuffle phase replication factor" (cf your question on another thread). For the technical details, the code is probably the next step.

I am very interested in a deep understanding of the MapReduce "Shuffle" phase algorithm and implementation. Are there whitepapers I could read for an explanation? Or another mailing list for this question? Obviously there is the code ;-)
