MapReduce Patterns, Algorithms, and Use Cases

Ilya Katsov’s post enumerates an extensive set of patterns and algorithms each accompanied by use cases and pseudocode:

  • counting and summing (log analysis, data querying)
  • collating (inverted indexes, ETL)
  • filtering, parsing, validation (log analysis, data querying, ETL, data validation)
  • distributed task execution (physical and engineering simulations, numerical analysis, performance testing)
  • sorting (ETL, data analysis)
  • iterative message passing/graph processing (graph analysis, web indexing)
  • distinct values (log analysis, uniqueness)
  • cross-correlation (text analysis, market analysis)
  • relational patterns: selection, projection, union, intersection, difference, aggregation, joining

As you can see there’s a wide range of problems that can be addressed using MapReduce algorithms. The complexity of applying MapReduce techniques comes from identifying the phases that lead to both effective and efficient analysis.
