Dear Friends,

          I have some very large file in HDFS with 3000+ blocks.

I want run a job with various input size. I want to use the same file as a
input. Usually the number of task is equal to number of blocks/splits.
Suppose the job with 2 task need to process randomly any two block of the
given input file.

How to give a random set of HDFS blocks as a input of a job?

note:  my aim is not processing the input file to produce some output.
I want to replicate the individual block based on the load.
