MapReduce Online

MapReduce Online
MapReduce is a popular framework for data-intensive distributed computing of batch jobs. To simplify fault tolerance, many implementations of MapReduce materialize the entire output of each map and reduce task before it can be consumed. In this paper, we propose a modified MapReduce architecture that allows data to be pipelined between operators. This extends the MapReduce programming model beyond batch processing, and can reduce completion times and improve system utilization for batch jobs as well. We present a modified version of the Hadoop MapReduce framework that supports online aggregation, which allows users to see "early returns" from a job as it is being computed. Our Hadoop Online Prototype (HOP) also supports continuous queries, which enable MapReduce programs to be written for applications such as event monitoring and stream processing. HOP retains the fault tolerance properties of Hadoop and can run unmodified user-defined MapReduce programs.
