When reduce tasks start in MapReduce Streaming?
Pedro Sá da Costa 2013-01-15, 23:06
Hi,

I read from documents that in MapReduce, the reduce tasks only start
after a percentage (by default 90%) of maps end. This means that the
slowest maps can delay the start of reduce tasks, and the input data
that is consumed by the reduce tasks is represented as a batch of
data. This means that, the scenario of having reduce tasks consuming
data as long the map tasks produce it, doesn't exist. But with the in
Hadoop MapReduce streaming this still happens?
