      Description

      HFileOutputFormat creates a partitions file for managing reducer partition boundaries. This file is created under /tmp and is just a UUID. As pointed out by Leo Urbina, there's no guarantee this path exists or is user-writable. As Ted Yu mentions, this file name is useless for users trying to debug a failing job. We should give it a meaningful name, based on job name and/or timestamp.
