one of our users is splitting a hive table using Pig.
but the Pig job generates a huge number of files under the _temporary folder.

there are so many files that hadoop fs -rmr fails, I tried using the NFS mount and a "find . -type f -delete" and a good old "rm -rf _temporary" , but that hasn't gone anywhere so far .. has anyone had this issue before?
