Fix Version/s: 1.1
In the SegmentMerger.java file about line 150 we have this:
final SequenceFile.Reader reader =
new SequenceFile.Reader(FileSystem.get(job), fSplit.getPath(),
Then about line 166 in the record reader we have this:
boolean res = reader.next(key, w);
If I am reading that right, that would mean that the map tap would loop
over all records for a given file and not just a given split.
Right, this should instead use SequenceFileRecordReader that already has the logic to handle splits. Patch coming shortly - thanks for spotting this! This could be the reason for "out of disk space" errors that many users reported.
