For buckets with a significant number of records, it makes a lot of sense to run the example I provided with 'do_prereduce' enabled as it will result in considerably less data being sent between the nodes. This can be enabled as follows:

curl -XPOST http://localhost:8098/mapred 
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' 
  -d '{"inputs":{

Best regards,
