Re: Hadoop scripting when to use dfs -put
My environment heap size varies from 18GB to 2GB

I don't have a recursive loop like while or something else

my dumbo code

multi_tree() is just a simple function

where the error handling is

def mapper(key, value):
   v = value.split(" ")[0]
   yield multi_tree(v),1
if __name__ == "__main__":
   import dumbo
