Yes, I've read directly from NFS.

Consider the case where your mapper takes as input a list of the file paths
to operate on. Your mapper would load each file one by one by using
standard* calls, build a SolrInputDocument out of each one, and
submit it to a SolrServer implementation stored as a member field in the
mapper during the setup call. Something like this:

I literally wrote that in the git editor just now, so I don't even know if
it compiles, but you can get the idea. Note that the NFS mount has to be
live on all of the task nodes. Also, if the number of lines in the input
file is small enough, Hadoop might not split it enough for you, so you
should use NLineInputFormat. And you should definitely tune the number of
running tasks to make sure that you don't destroy your Solr box with lots
of traffic.

I've used the patch that Anatoli mentions as well, and that does work.
