I'd like to implement k-means by myself, in the following naive way:
Given a large set of vectors:
1. Generate k random centers from set.
2. Mapper reads all center and a split of the vectors set and emits for
each vector the closest center as a key.
3. Reducer calculated new center and writes it.
4. Goto step 2 until no change in the centers.
My question is very basic: how do I distribute all the new centers
(produced by the reducers) to all the mappers? I can't use distributed
cache since its read-only. I can't use the context.write since it will
create a file for each reduce task, and I need a single file. The more
general issue here is how to distribute data produced by reducer to all the
