Subject [jira] [Created] (MAPREDUCE-4782) NLineInputFormat skips first line of last InputSplit
Date Thu, 08 Nov 2012 19:56:13 GMT
Mark Fuhs created MAPREDUCE-4782:

             Summary: NLineInputFormat skips first line of last InputSplit
                 Key: MAPREDUCE-4782
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-4782
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: client
    Affects Versions: 0.22.0, trunk
         Environment: job.setMapperClass(Mapper.class);  // just pass text lines through to
NLineInputFormat.setNumLinesPerSplit(job, 100);
NLineInputFormat.setInputPaths(job, "/path/to/a_file_with_many_lines.txt");
            Reporter: Mark Fuhs

NLineInputFormat creates FileSplits that are then used by LineRecordReader to generate Text
values. To deal with an idiosyncrasy of LineRecordReader, the begin and length fields of the
FileSplit are constructed differently for the first FileSplit vs. the rest.

After looping through all lines of a file, the final FileSplit is created, but the creation
does not respect the difference of how the first vs. the rest of the FileSplits are created.

This results in the first line of the final InputSplit being skipped. I've created a patch
to NLineInputFormat, and this fixes the problem.
