Here is my 2 cents.
The parameters you are looking at are quite specific. Unless you know what
you are doing it might be hard to set them exactly right and they shouldn't
make that much of a difference - again unless you know the specifics.
What worked for me is using a single "wave" of reducers. Basically, you
want to set the number of reduce tasks to be equal to the number of reduce
slots (assuming your job will run by itself).
It might also help to re-arrange your joins so that the larger table is
That seems especially important with map joins since those fail if there is
not enough memory and have to be rerun as regular joins.
Hope this helps.
