Re: Setting number of mappers in Teragen
The MR1 teragen's mappers # depends on the total number of rows and
demanded # of maps.

How are you passing -Dmapred.map.tasks=20 (no spaces) exactly? All
generic options must go in before any other options do, so it should
appear right after the word "teragen" in your command.
