RE: unable to spill content to disk warning
This is a warning with the correct message. This warning could
potentially lead to out of memory and/or out of (temporary) disk space
errors. If there are no such errors, it is safe to assume that the
computations completed successfully.

Subject: unable to spill content to disk warning

Pig folks,

Is this a cause of concern?:

09/03/30 22:15:51 WARN mapReduceLayer.PigHadoopLogger:
org.apache.pig.data.SortedDataBag: Unable to spill contents to disk

The "WARN" status implies that it's not a fatal problem, but the message
content is pretty worrisome. Should a user be concerned if they see
this?
(If so, does it mean there's insufficient swap space? And if not,
perhaps
the message can be re-worded :)

-Chris
