Re: [How to optimize MapReduce performance using Pig]
Hi Florencia,

Welcome to Pig!

Unfortunately without knowing the actual script that you're trying to
execute, we won't be able to help you with optimizations. There are some
very general guidelines for optimizing Pig scripts though.

Take a look at http://chimera.labs.oreilly.com/books/1234000001811/ch08.html.
There are some general guidelines on writing Pig scripts as well as some
Hadoop settings that can be tweaked for better performance.

If you're able to post your script(s) to the mailing list, we can certainly
take a look and help you optimize it.

Hope this helps!

P.S. This question should really be posted to the user mailing list, not
the dev list. :)
