Pig >> mail # user >> replicated join amd map tasks

Re: replicated join amd map tasks
in replicated join , the number of maps spawned should be same as the
number of splits for the first join input.
In case of default join, there would be additional map tasks for the 2nd
input's splits. But if you are able to run the replicated join without
running out of memory, then the 2nd input is likely to have only a
handful of splits.

questions for you
1. was the replicated join successful ?
2. do you have pig.splitCombination  turned on ? (its on by default).
3. what version of pig are you using ?
4. what is the size of each input to join ?
