Thejas M Nair commented on PIG-1062:
------------------------------------

bq. You can get the same info from the counters without unnecessarily 
complicating tuple processing, imo. In fact you can use (num bytes read / num 
records read) to get the old calculation, and not rely on number of samples and 
local average size estimates.

Yes, I agree that using counters would have been a cleaner way to get total 
number of tuples in reducer, but it looks there is no reliable way to get the 
complete counter information of a map from the reducer part of the MR job.

> This is part of the effort to implement new load store interfaces as laid out 
> in http://wiki.apache.org/pig/LoadStoreRedesignProposal .
> PigStorage and BinStorage are now working.
> SampleLoader and subclasses -RandomSampleLoader, PoissonSampleLoader need to 
> be changed to work with new LoadFunc interface.  
> Fixing SampleLoader and RandomSampleLoader will get order-by queries working.
> PoissonSampleLoader is used by skew join.
