Data-Intensive Text Processing with MapReduce by Jimmy Lin, Chris Dyer, Graeme Hirst

By Jimmy Lin, Chris Dyer, Graeme Hirst

Our global is being revolutionized by way of data-driven equipment: entry to giant quantities of knowledge has generated new insights and opened intriguing new possibilities in trade, technological know-how, and computing purposes. Processing the big amounts of information helpful for those advances calls for huge clusters, making allotted computing paradigms extra the most important than ever. MapReduce is a programming version for expressing dispensed computations on giant datasets and an execution framework for large-scale info processing on clusters of commodity servers. The programming version offers an easy-to-understand abstraction for designing scalable algorithms, whereas the execution framework transparently handles many system-level info, starting from scheduling to synchronization to fault tolerance. This publication specializes in MapReduce set of rules layout, with an emphasis on textual content processing algorithms universal in usual language processing, details retrieval, and computer studying. We introduce the proposal of MapReduce layout styles, which signify common reusable strategies to quite often happening difficulties throughout a number of challenge domain names. This publication not just intends to aid the reader ''think in MapReduce'', but additionally discusses obstacles of the programming version besides. desk of Contents: creation / MapReduce fundamentals / MapReduce set of rules layout / Inverted Indexing for textual content Retrieval / Graph Algorithms / EM Algorithms for textual content Processing / ultimate feedback

Sample text

There are several reasons why lots of small files are to be avoided. 18 Large multi-block files represent a more efficient use of namenode memory than many single-block files (each of which consumes less space than a single block size). In addition, mappers in a MapReduce job use individual files as a basic unit for splitting input data. At present, there is no default mechanism in Hadoop that allows a mapper to process multiple files. As a result, mapping over many small files will yield as many map tasks as there are files.

That is, the reducer output key must be exactly the same as the reducer input key. In Hadoop, there is no such restriction, and the reducer can emit an arbitrary number of output key-value pairs (with different keys). To provide a bit more implementation detail: pseudo-code provided in this book roughly mirrors how MapReduce programs are written in Hadoop. Mappers and reducers are objects that implement the Map and Reduce methods, respectively. In Hadoop, a mapper object is initialized for each map task (associated with a particular sequence of key-value pairs called an input split) and the Map method is called on each key-value pair by the execution framework.

An important optimization here is to prefer nodes that are on the same rack in the datacenter as the node holding the relevant data block, since inter-rack bandwidth is significantly less than intra-rack bandwidth. 11 In the canonical case, that is. Recall that MapReduce may receive its input from other sources. 26 2. MAPREDUCE BASICS Synchronization. In general, synchronization refers to the mechanisms by which multiple concurrently running processes “join up”, for example, to share intermediate results or otherwise exchange state information.
